Recycling PET Plastic

PET Plastic

PolyEthylene Terephthalate (PET) is an inexpensive, lightweight plastic and most commonly used for soft drinks bottles and packaging intended for single use applications.  Recycled PET can be used as food grade packaging material.  If segregated and free from moisture and contamination (i.e. food or other plastics), PET plastic can be recycled reducing excessive waste charges and potentially generating a revenue return.
