Plastic

There are many types of plastic! There are not currently markets to recycle all of them, and not all are of high-enough quality to be recycled into new products. Some (#1 and #2) are banned from the landfill in Vermont. Some can be recycled in your blue bin. Some require special recycling.

Blue Bin Recycling
  • #1 (PET) – banned from the trash
  • #2 (HDPE) – banned from the trash
  • Single-use, rigid containers and packaging
    • Ex: bottles, jugs, yogurt containers
