The World of Plastic - Recycling Fun Facts

Plastic for Recycle

Quoted in part from www.stumblerz.com/recycling-fun-facts

Plastic is a big issue.  There are seven different types of plastics that make up objects and containers we use everyday.

Here is where we take a little turn in the road.  If you have been following our website www.crownshredandrecycling.com, you will notice that we manufacture plastic planks.  Do you remember my blog about "The Day in the Life of a Yogurt Container"?  I am sure you do!  It is interesting how a yogurt container can end up being a picnic table made out of plastic.

There are so many uses for all the household plastics.  It is important that you buy products that display the number of the plastic in the triangle so recyclers will know what kind of plastic it is.

Every year the number of recycling businesses grow.  There are over 17,000 plastic recycling centers waiting for your plastics.

Besides plastic fence posts and planks, all of these materials can be reused and made into new products for mattress filling, absorbing products (sponges), wadding, and felt that is used to create fiber for clothing.

Let's make it happen!!
