The symbol above may contain a number which can be used to identify different types of plastic. Most of the plastic recycling facilities in Ireland will accept PET (soft drinks bottles – denoted by the number 1 within the triangle) and HDPE (i.e. detergent, shampoo and shower gel bottles – denoted by the number 2 within the triangle) bottles. Some also take clean LDPE such as plastic bags and film/wrap – denoted by the number 4 within the triangle. Please check with your local recycling centre or waste contractor to see what types of plastic they accept for recycling.
The crossed-out wheeled bin symbol indicates that the item should be disposed of separately from household waste. The item should be handed in for recycling in accordance with local environmental regulations for waste disposal.
By separating a marked item from household waste, you will help reduce the volume of waste sent to incinerators or land-fill and minimise any potential negative impact on human health or the environment.
