In our previous blog post, we further explained the Resin Identification Codes (RIC) of plastics and their crucial role in creating a sustainable future. When it comes to logistics, storage, and shipping, pallets are an indispensable tool. Traditionally made from wood, an increasing number of businesses are turning to plastic pallets for their durability, longevity, cleanliness and recyclability. However, not all plastic pallets are created equal. Understanding the type of plastic used in their construction is critical for ensuring recyclability.
Recycling is not only good for the planet, but it's also good for humanity as a whole. However, the process of recycling can be somewhat confusing, especially when it comes to plastics. With so many different types of plastics in use today, it's important to know which ones can be recycled and how they should be handled. That's where Resin Identification Codes (RIC) come into play.
