Among the key features of the Recycling and Waste Barrel with Bug Barrier Lid are:
- Made from the purest Type-2 HDPE recycled plastic available today. Milk jugs are the primary source of post-consumer material for this product. Ten milk jugs make up one pound of lumber, which can be recycled again and again.
- Heavy duty liners make maintenance easy.
- In order to prevent fading and weathering from the sun, premium grade resins and ultraviolet inhibitors are added to the lumber.
- Designed to meet all LEED recycling requirements, and ADA compliant. Ideal for indoor and outdoor use.
- Because our engineered products are built with commercial-grade techniques, our plastic lumber lasts for decades.
- The weatherproof nature of plastic lumber prevents it from absorbing moisture and rotting. It also won't harbor insects. Despite offering many of the characteristics of wood, it requires almost no maintenance!
- Designed and manufactured in the United States.
- Trash barrels made of durable materials are great for use in outdoor settings, such as playgrounds, parks, golf courses, schools and colleges. In addition to busy pedestrian centers and indoor and outdoor malls, seaside boardwalks also make excellent spots to place these colorful trash containers.
About Plastic Lumber:
Pure HDPE (#2) plastic makes all the difference when it comes to recycling. With 97 percent recycled material, our plastic lumber is so pure that it can be recycled a second time thanks to the high purity count in Type2 Material.
Color-stable, non-corrosive, and less expensive than new plastic, recycled plastic has a number of advantages. Additionally, recycling plastic reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and diverts waste from landfills.
Insects, moisture, and mold cannot penetrate Type2 Material, which means it won't rot, splinter, or become dinner for pests. Added UV inhibitors ensure color stability, while bonding agents ensure structural integrity by providing complete molecular linkage.
Here's how it works:
- You can recycle soda bottles, milk jugs, aspirin bottles, and other items right from your curbside. The materials are then sorted, crushed, and baled at a material recovery facility.
- After the containers are grinded into flakes, they are cleaned of residues and contaminants, then sent along the recycling chain.
- Colorant, UV inhibitors, and bonding agents are added to the clean plastic flakes before they are melted into pellets.
- As a final step, Type2 Material is extruded into furniture, ready to close the loop on unnecessary waste. Our dependency on fossil fuels is reduced when we demand recycled plastic instead of virgin plastics.
