Many types of plastics can be recycled. PVC, for example, is one of the most versatile plastics and is the 3rd most used in the world. It is also one of the most recycled; 72% of all collected PVC waste from windows and 67% of used PVC pipes are recycled. Industrial packaging films made from polyolefins are also recovered and recycled. Think of products as diverse as shopping bags, bottle crates, food containers, sacks for agricultural products, water pipes and windscreen wipers; all made from polyolefins, and all suitable for some form of recovery.
