i was just browsing through my chemistry book when i came across a chart of
recyclable plastics. here it is......
Number Abbreviation Polymer
1 PETE Polyethylene terephthalate
2 HDPE High density polyethylene
3 V Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
4 LDPE Low density polyethylene
5 PP Polypropylene
6 PS Polystyrene
well, right away i went to my recycle bin to see what was made of what. i
found a number of things to be made out of HDPE. i'm not really sure what
to do with them, but there's got to be something they could be used for.
if we use HDPE or LDPE in our capacitors i figured that they have to have
some value. now that i know what is in my recycle bin i must find a use
for it and i won't stop until i do. if anyone has some suggestions for
possible uses, that would be great.
