Plastic Recycling

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.
