Why can't I recycle other types of plastic that are not bottle-shaped?
The types of plastic we can accept are:
- (PET or PETE1) Polyethylene terephthalate and
- (HDPE2) High density Polyethylene
Our contractor only accepts this type of plastic, which is bottle-shaped. This is because the UK market for other types of plastic is unstable and the majority of it is sent abroad and they cannot guarantee that it is recycled.
