What IS LDPE
LDPE is resistant to impact (doesn’t break easily), moisture (water proof), and chemicals (can stand up to many hazardous materials).
Know it or not, you likely use LDPE every day, for many very good reasons. For example, let’s say you need to carry something home from your trip to the store (shopping bags). You may want to supply your child’s lunch with a non-refrigerated drink (juice boxes or “aseptic” packaging). Or your child may like playing make believe (toys). And, of course, nobody wants to grab naked copper electrical wire (insulation on electrical wires and cables).
Plus there are many industrial and agriculture uses, particularly as plastic film and packaging to protect all sorts of products.
We help our customers turn their waste paper into recyclable material, so it doesn’t end up in landfill which naturally is better for the environment.
And recycling rates for bags and wraps are growing. So… what happens to all that LDPE collected for recycling? When recycled, LDPE is given a second chance to live on as other useful products, such as:
- Shipping envelopes
- Garbage can liners
- Floor tile
- Compost bins
- Trash cans
- Landscape timber
- Outdoor lumber
