1. Can I recycle pizza boxes? Yes, as long as there is NO food residue
2. What do those numbers (surrounded by arrows) on the bottom of plastic products mean?
Answer: The numbers found on the bottom of plastic products are resin identification codes that were established
by the plastics industry to help consumers identify the plastic type of various containers and products. It was hoped that this
code would make it easier for consumers to identify whether and how to recycle various plastic products and packaging.
Remember to always check first with your local recycling program website to see what plastics are recycled in your program
The resin identification code is as follows:
01 PET - Polyethylene terephthalate (examples: soda and water bottles)
02 HDPE - High-density polyethylene (examples: milk bottles and detergent bottles)
03 PVC - Polyvinyl chloride (examples: juice bottles, cling films, and piping)
04 LDPE - Low-density polyethylene (examples: squeezable bottles and frozen food bags)
05 PP Polypropylene (examples: yogurt containers, margarine tubs, disposable cups and plates)
06 PS Polystyrene (examples: egg cartons, packing peanuts, disposable cups and plates)
07 O (Other) Often Polycarbonate or Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) (examples: baby milk bottles and electronic casing)
