What happens to the recycled material?

After the items has been reduced to raw materials, they are sold to factories where they are used to make something new. Outdoor furniture and decking, watering cans, storage containers and bins, tubes for building purposes, flooring tiles, playground surface covers, sporting fields, and more might all be the final products of recycled plastic.

A recycling chain of custody is maintained and a meticulous management of the flow of recyclables from beginning to end. In this way, we can verify and verify the destinations of all delivered items and their respective purposes.
