Get shredded!

Destined for landfill or even the ocean, this plastic will live another life as a new product. Our plastic (originally bottle caps) is collected by our community, cleaned, sorted, and then processed for recycling. All of our shredded plastic is completely 'pure', containing no added binders or virgin materials.

Please note:
• Shredded plastic is shipped in resealable zip lock bags. We try to utilise pre-loved bags wherever possible, and encourage you to return your bag (or even find a way to reuse it yourself!) once you've recycled all of your shredded plastic.
• As our shredded plastic is produced using reclaimed materials only, colours may vary slightly from pictured, contain a mix of similar hues, or the odd fleck from a different colour

Original Material Bottle Caps (Iced Coffee, Milk)
Flake Size 8mm Or Less
Flake Size Suitable For Compression, Extrusion, Injection & Sheet Press

LDPE: A softer, more flexible plastic with a melting point of 115°C. In comparison to HDPE, LDPE may be more transparent, and is more likely to crack under stress.

HDPE: Rigid and durable, offering greater chemical resistance. HDPE has a melting point of 135°C, allowing it to withstand higher temperatures than LDPE. HDPE has a greater strength and opacity due to it's crystalline structure. 

We want to make it easier for you to start up and run your own recycling workspace. When you purchase a product from Precious Plastic Melbourne, you're supporting us in our mission to promote community recycling in Australia!
