Information about Recycle Codes on Plastic Water Bottles
Often times, people ask us what the plastic recycle codes are for. To make a long story short: most plastic water bottles and water containers are usually marked with a number on the bottom. This is commonly known as the recycling symbol or recycling code. The recycling numbers can range from #1 to #7, depending on the type of plastic used. This number system is to help facilitate recycling programs across the country. It is not used as a rating or ranking system for the products.
