Polythene Bags FAQs
Can polythene bags be recycled?
Yes, polythene bags can be recycled, but the recycling process can vary depending on the type of polythene used. Typically, this type of bag is made from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) or high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastics.
Many recycling service providers accept LDPE and HDPE plastics for recycling. However, not all recycling centres may accept this type of bag directly, and they might need to be dropped off at specific collection points or designated recycling bins.
All polythene bags sold by Macfarlane Packaging feature at least 30% recycled plastic.
What are polythene bags made of?
This type of bag is made of polyethylene, a type of plastic polymer. polyethylene is one of the most used plastics in the world due to its versatility and low cost.
The two most common types of polythene used in the production of polythene bags are:
- Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is a flexible and lightweight type of polyethylene. It is commonly used to make thin, soft, and stretchable bags, which are often used for packaging products like groceries, produce, and clothing.
- High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) is a denser and more rigid form of polyethylene. It is used to manufacture stronger and sturdier polythene bags, suitable for carrying heavier items and industrial applications.
Both LDPE and HDPE polythene bags are widely used due to their durability, moisture resistance, and cost-effectiveness.
