Recycle Bottles La Mirada
Plastic drink bottles are one of the most common materials that end up at the landfill. These bottles can be recycled and transformed into new beneficial products, lowering the requirement to produce more raw materials. Plastic is not biodegradable, meaning if you toss it away, it will not break down like green waste and food scraps do. Instead, plastic bottles gather and sit in our local land fills, or even worse, end up in our rivers, oceans, and lakes. When plastic bottles make it into our waterways, they can be very damaging to the plant an animal life that make those areas home there.
At Main Street Fibers, we encourage everybody to help put a system in place to recycle bottles. Recycling plastic bottles can be useful for the environment along with your bottom line. Businesses and individuals alike can generate income from recycling plastic bottles rather than throwing them away. There are a couple of things you will want to remember if you decide to put a plastic bottle recycling program in location. First, always ensure that your plastic bottles are free from any liquid. Second, you should understand that all containers will not have a redemption value. Plastic bottles purchased outside of California might not be eligible for redemption. They can and should be recycled.
Can Recycling La Mirada
Like bottles, aluminum drink cans typically end up in the trash when they could be recycled. At Main Street Fibers, our objective is to inform and motivate people to recycle cans instead of throwing them away. We believe that this is especially crucial for our industrial customers. Some studies by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency show that in the typical workplace, as much as ninety percent of the solid waste that winds up in the trash can in fact be recycled. Cans comprise a large part of that waste.
Whether you're setting up a recycling program in your home or workplace, having dedicated recycling receptacles along with regular wastebasket is a terrific method to motivate people to think twice prior to tossing cans in the trash. For businesses like healthcare facilities and universities that collect cans on a large scale, we have commercial services available to help you process and store your recyclables until they are ready to be picked up. Speak to one of our staff members for more details. For people, it's important to understand that there is a limitation to how much aluminum cans you can recycle in a particular period of time. Currently, that limit is set at 100lbs each day.

Each of these plastic products has to be recycled in a different way, so it's crucial to separate your recyclable plastics by type. In order to recognize the various chemical structures and polymer types that comprise your plastic products, makers use a numeric recognition system to help you. You have most likely seen the chasing arrows sign that contains a number in between one and seven. These numbers are used to determine the 7 most common kinds of plastics based upon their polymer. These plastic types include:
- Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE)
- High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)
- Polypropylene (PP)
- Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Even if a plastic product isn't marked with a resin code, it can still be recycled. You will want to sort these items under "other". Successful recycling programs begin with a good set of best practices in places.
