HDPE Bottles are the second most commonly recycled grade of plastic in single-stream municipal waste after PET Bottles. HDPE Milk Jugs and HDPE Detergent Bottles are both made from High-Density Polyethylene Fractional Melt plastic. Baled material is shipped from an MRF to a facility equipped with a wash line that processes bales into washed flakes and then further into reprocessed pellets. The pellets can be used in a variety of packaging and industrial applications such as drainage pipes or plastic pallets. Both grades have recently hit all-time highs in price and are in high demand right here in the United States Of America.
