Resin codes are found in triangles located on consumer grade plastics. These numbers range from 1 to 7. These numbers identify the type of plastic the product is made from. This helps to distinguish what can and cannot be recycled in your recycling center.
The majority of plastic is not biodegradable. Approximately 8 million tons of plastic waste is introduced to our oceans each year. The need to recycle or repurpose plastics is critical to pollution reduction.
