Frequently Asked Questions
1. Isn't this still flexible packaging? Does it have multiple layers of material which means it's not recyclable?
2. How do I recycle the recyclable STANDCAP? Do I need to cut it open and remove all the product, or rinse it out somehow?
First, check to be sure that your STANDCAP has the #2 HDPE logo on it.
It’s important that if your STANDCAP does not have this logo on it that you don’t put it in your recycling bin. If your STANDCAP does have this logo, great! That means it is ready to be recycled. Simply squeeze out as much of the product from the recyclable STANDCAP as you can, remove the cap and discard it, and place the recyclable STANDCAP in your recycling bin. If your community accepts #2 HDPE plastic, the recyclable STANDCAP can be put into your curbside recyclable bin. #2 plastic is a commonly recycled plastic and is what many laundry detergent bottles and milk jugs are made from. Please do not cut open the recyclable STANDCAP to try and remove excess product! At the recycling facility, the recyclable STANDCAP is ground up and goes through a “rinsing” process, where all the residual product is washed off the plastic. In short, there is no need to do any rinsing at home. Your community may not accept the recyclable STANDCAP for recycling. Please check with your local community programs.
