Enough fake news! The truth about plastic recycling


The problem of plastic pollution is increasingly in the spotlight, with a lot of conflicting information circulating online.

In this article, we want to dismantle fake news and reveal the truth about plastic recycling, focusing on the key role of industrial recycling plants.

Let’s dispel the false myths

Plastic is not recyclable: FALSE!

Most types of plastic are recyclable. Today’s advanced technologies allow plastic to be transformed into new products, avoiding wasting precious resources and polluting the environment.

Plastic recycling is useless: FALSE!

Recycling plastic offers numerous advantages:

  • Reduces pollution:  Less plastic in landfills and oceans means a healthier environment for everyone.
  • Saves energy and resources:  Recycling plastic requires less energy and resources than producing virgin plastic.
  • Creates new jobs:  The plastic recycling industry is growing and creating new job opportunities.

Recycled plastic is of poor quality: FALSE!

Recycled plastic can be used to make high quality products, some concrete examples:

  • PET plastic bottles can be transformed into new containers, textile fibers for clothing or packaging.
  • Old plastic films can be recycled into benches, garden pots and even into new plastic films.
  • End-of-life tires can be turned into asphalt for roads or into new tires.

Is plastic really recyclable?

There is often a false belief that plastic is not truly recyclable. In reality, many types of plastic can be successfully recycled through appropriate processes. Industrial recycling plants, such as those developed by Hydroswiss, play a crucial role in ensuring that plastic is treated correctly.
