Destined for landfill, this plastic will live another life as a new product. Our plastic (originally bottle caps) is collected, cleaned, sorted, and then processed for recycling. All of our shredded plastic is completely 'pure', containing no added binders or virgin materials.
This particular grind of plastic is a mix of HDPE (Yellow) and LDPE (White).
Please note: 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.

MDPE: Has good shock and drop resistance properties. It's also less notch sensitive, and has better stress cracking resistance than HDPE.
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!
