Did you know that our scrap is big business for those looking for HDPE.
Plastics are used for just about everything from food packaging and furniture but unfortunately, not all of it is recyclable. Even with the quantity of plastic used in our everyday lives we haven’t managed to responsibly control the accumulation of plastic waste, which happens to be the top waste product filling our landfills. Plastics do play an important role in our households, hospitals and more businesses so it’s great to see businesses looking to buy and sell recycled plastics, such as Scrap HDPE which uses a business model of collecting commonly used plastic.
What is HDPE?
HDPE stands for High Density Polyethylene which is used to make common consumer products like detergent bottles, garbage containers, snack food packaging, carrier bags, drums, bottles, barrels and much more to be recycled using a process called HDPE Scrap. HDPE is used for many packaging applications because it provides excellent water barrier properties and chemical resistance, hence the reason why it is used to package household and industrial chemicals.
How does HDPE scrapping work?
Scrap HDPE is a recyclable waste consisting of only High Density Polyethylene. HDPE wastes are sorted according to similar shapes, forms and then colors. It is then scrapped into the form of post Consumer HDPE Scrap, HDPE shredding, HDPE grocery bags, HDPE pipes (it can withstand tremendous force) and quite a few others.
Once HDPE has been scraped for recycling, it then supplies it to various industries. Prices vary on how the HDPE Scrap was processed and of course, supply and demand. The site HDPE Scrap offers consulting services in the US Market, Asia, Europe, South America and Australia, to actively pursue distribution channels to add to their growing portfolio of over 40 big world-wide companies.
