PET or PETE (polyethylene terephthalate).

This is the plastic normally found in drinks bottles and other sustenance related items. This should be washed, and it is then chipped and dried.

This would then be able to be dissolved and transformed into sustenance contact-endorsed reused PET (RPET).

LDPE (low-thickness polyethylene)

This is the sort of plastic that is utilized as a part of shopping packs. LDPE plastic is the most widely recognized sort of plastic utilized by UK makers at 19.3%.
