What happens to my recycled plastic waste?

When we collect your plastic waste, the first step is to give it a good sort to figure out the specific types of plastic there are. Based on that, we’ll make sure it gets to the right recycling spot.

From there, how we go about recycling or handling the plastic varies, depending on its type and where it’s being processed.

Most commonly, plastics are first stripped down of all the extras, like labels, and then shredded and cleaned up. After that, they’re melted and transformed into little pellets. These pellets then become the building blocks for brand-new plastic items.

We are always dedicated to the most sustainable approach to plastic waste disposal, with 99% of the waste we collect being diverted from landfill. Of this, 43% is recycled and 56% is converted into green energy.

FAQ’s

FAQs

What are the different types of plastic waste?

There are seven main categories of plastic waste, based on their resin type:
  • Polyethylene terephthalate (PET): This is the most common type of plastic used in beverage bottles.
  • High-density polyethylene (HDPE): This type of plastic is used in milk jugs, detergent bottles, and other containers.
  • Polyvinyl chloride (PVC): This type of plastic is used in food packaging, pipes, and building materials.
  • Low-density polyethylene (LDPE): This type of plastic is used in grocery bags, plastic wrap, and other flexible packaging.
  • Polypropylene (PP): This type of plastic is used in food containers, yoghurt cups, and straws.
  • Polystyrene (PS): This type of plastic is used in food packaging, insulation, and disposable utensils.
  • Other: This category includes all other types of plastic, such as polycarbonate, acrylic, and nylon.

What are the environmental impacts of plastic waste?

Plastic waste can have a significant negative impact on the environment. It pollutes land and water, harms wildlife, and contributes to climate change. Plastic waste that ends up in landfills can take hundreds of years to decompose. When it eventually breaks down, it releases harmful chemicals into the soil and groundwater.
