Scientific tests prove HDPE can be recycled at least 10 times
from Plastics Today
Considering that PET (#1) and HDPE (#2) comprise 97 percent of all plastic bottles on the market in North America and are the easiest materials to recycle, the recycling industry often questions why their rate of recycling is not higher. With the service life of containers being around 10 to 20 years, this means the availability of material for sustainable production from the same recycled plastic is secured for at least 100 to 200 years.
