The common plastics we accept include:
Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)
It is a versatile plastic commonly used to manufacture a wide range of containers, wash bottles, dispensing bottles, molded laboratory equipment, and tubing, among other products. It is possible to turn clean LDPE waste into various products, including flooring materials and furniture.
Expanded Polystyrene (EPS)
Expanded polystyrene is used in various applications because of its appealing properties like excellent damping properties, thermal insulation, and being lightweight. Its shock-absorbing features make it suitable for transporting and storing fragile items like electronic equipment, chemicals, and wines. We collect EPS for recycling, but you should separate it from other kinds of soft plastic waste. We provide the right recycling bins for this material.
