Plastic and more specifically plastic bottles is among the
most common recyclable materials (which also includes cardboard, paper metal,
glass and textiles. Recycling is
simply the process of reusing used
materials and converting them into new products or other derivatives.
Plastic is a Non-Biodegradable Product that is
widely used in many different ways. Each year in the U.S.
alone roughly 40 billion plastic bottles are produced, and a great majority are
disposed of soon after they are used. Not only do these discarded plastic
bottles end up in landfills, but they also end up in our oceans, rivers, lakes
and ponds where they destroy many of their natural inhabitants.
Not only can we recycle at work, but we can
also start recycling plastic bottles within our homes. Some basic tips for
recycling plastic bottles from our office and homes are as follows:
• Call your local Recycling Coordinator
if there are plastic recycling programs in place or facilities for handling
plastic bottle recycling. Oftentimes the type of plastic will be referred to by
the number denoted on the plastic material (that is inside the triangle).
• The local recycling facility will expect you
to remove the caps, empty, rinse and clean the bottles until they are odor-free
and label-free prior to bringing them to
the facility. The plastic caps and labels should be removed and discarded to
help with the recycling process. The procedures for plastic bottle processing
and refunds vary nationwide depending upon state and county guidelines. Some
areas have local bottle banks and drop off locations while others have curbside
The recycling of plastic bottles is very
beneficial for saving resources and the environment and with just a little extra
effort we can all do our part to help the cause.
