About Recycling at Eco Plastics
Here we will tell you where to drop off the recyclables, what to look for when you're recycling and how to determine the different kinds of plastic.
What We Collect
We collect all kinds of plastic but our main focus for collection is #1(PETE), #2 (HDPE) and #5 (PP). The only types of plastic that we do not take is #3(PVC) because of the toxins it produces when melted.
How to Determine the Difference
#1 (PETE) and #2 (HDPE) are the most common types of recycled plastic. You can determine the type of plastic it is by looking on the bottom of any bottle or container to find a triangle with a number.
