Recycling Plastic Bottles – The Cycle
Step 2: Collecting
Once finished, remember to recycle your plastic bottles! All you need to do is to put them in the containers provided by your local community (yellow or blue bins, bags, etc) for packaging, or straight at your local waste drop-off site.
Step 3: Sorting
Once collected, household-sorted packaging waste is recovered at the sorting plant. Clear PET bottles are separated from the rest and sent by truck or barge to our France Plastiques Recyclage factory to be regenerated into pellets.
Step 5: Manufacturing
The rPET granules return to the plastic industry to be transformed, most of the time, into new plastic bottles.
