What is Single-Use Plastic? Single-use plastic is any plastic that can only be used once before being disposed of or recycled. Common examples surround us daily, including: grocery bags, water bottles, product packaging and straws. Recycling plastic rather than throwing it away is ideal, but recycling plastics is more improbable with China and other nations refusing to take North American waste products making recycling plastic more costly than recycling other scrap end of life materials. Single-use plastic comes in all polymer types, shapes , sizes and colours which all must be handled differently. In order to be recycled they first have to be separated and recycling technology simply has not kept pace with manufacturing and the consumer. Now that dumping our problems is no longer an issue, we are being told the truth – not all plastics can be recycled. We have heard recently that black dyed materials are non recyclable and straws are too light to be managed through equipment, two examples of many.

Green-Go Recycling has been very generous and helpful with our community project. It donated CD-ROM Drives and Power Packs we used to build a CNC Machine to demonstrate to young students how to code a CNC Machine during our annual National Engineering Month Event in March. We had the opportunity to see Green-Go's plant and was very impressed with its operation.
