|PETE 1||A type of plastic known as Polyethylene Terephthalate is clear, strong, lightweight. As a 100% recyclable material, PET plastic is versatile and is able to be recycled, which makes it a great alternative to other plastic materials.|
|HDPE 2||Type 2 plastics are commonly used to make containers for milk, shampoos, conditioners, and cleaning products.The High Density Polyethylene is made from petroleum and is 100% recyclable.|
|LDPE 4||Low Density Polyethylene is a soft plastic that is widely used in bags, food packaging, and industrial films. This material can also be recycled.|
|The large majority of the paper and cardboard we use every day can be recycled. Corrugated cardboard boxes can be recycled multiple times, which means many corrugated boxes we use are already made from recycled materials.|
Do we have a Recyclable/Close Loop Program?
We are always happy to take the components back to recycle/reuse them and we have many ‘local’ customers that drop the pails back off at our facility. Though we accept the components back, unfortunately don't have any programs to assist in returning them (i.e. sending a return label - our cost structure does not incorporate the shipping expense of sending the pails in the mail back to us). Instead, we have chosen to keep our initial costs as low as possible in order to get this biodegradable product into customers hands. Some customers reuse the components in other ways to ‘recycle’ the packaging so there is no cost of sending it back. All recycling efforts contribute to preserving the environment and conserving natural resources and we appreciate everyone's contribution in this initiative.
