What is HDPE
Due to its properties, stiffness, strength, resistance to moisture, high density polyethylene material (HDPE) is a commonly recycled plastic and is the most environmentally stable of all plastics – giving off no harmful fumes into the environment. Manufacturing HDPE plastics requires only a fraction of the energy required to produce steel from iron ore, further contributing to its classification of being Eco-friendly.
Within the UK, best practices on the domestic and commercial recycling of films are continually being rolled out by local councils. For those who can't recycle plastic film at home/kerbside, most types of plastic films can be recycled at carrier bag collection points at the larger stores of most major supermarkets including Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, The Co-op and Waitrose.
