As a HDPE recycling company, we recover HDPE scrap from post-industrial scrap for a variety of products made using the extrusion or injection moulding processes. Items include HDPE pipe, bottles, panels, film and sheets.High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a Polyethylene thermoplastic that produced using petroleum, and it takes 1.75 kilograms of petroleum to make one kilogram of HDPE. The global HDPE market reached a volume of more than 30 million tons in 2007.
Waste Plastic Recycling
When it comes to waste plastic recycling, HDPE scrap is commonly recycled and carried the number “2” as it's recycling symbol. HDPE scrap is often recycled in order to produce items such as plastic lumber, tables, benches, stationary and other durable plastic products.
Waste plastic recycling is important for many reasons and we hear about those reasons all of the time. We constantly hear about how waste plastic recycling is good for the environment, easy on the pocket, and how it reduces landfill waste.
Thanks to technological advances in the waste plastic recycling process, recycling is much easier, and it's no wonder there has been such an increase in the amount of HDPE scrap recycling taking place. However, even with this increase taking place, around 75% of recyclable materials are still standing in landfills.
HDPE scrap recycling can greatly help reduce waste disposal costs, and can generate revenues from the sale of recycled HDPE. In addition, HDPE recycling can also reduce the labour costs associated with the handling of HDPE scrap during the waste disposal process.
