Certain hard plastics aren’t recyclable. V (vinyl) or PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is tough and weathers well, so it is commonly used for piping, siding, and similar applications. PVC is cheap, so it’s found in plenty of products and packaging. Because chlorine is part of PVC, its manufacture can result in the release of highly dangerous dioxins.
It is found in shampoo bottles, cooking oil bottles, blister packaging, wire jacketing, siding, windows and piping, among others, and cannot be recycled via the commingled or hard plastics bin. Wanless can help manage any non-recyclable packaging needs your business has.
