Are woven polypropylene bags recyclable?
Polypropylene (PP) is one of the safer plastics. Because it can be recycled, many PP items bear a number 5 inside a recycle symbol. However, woven PP is exceptionally strong and durable, so reusing it as long as possible is even more environmentally friendly than sending it straight to a recycling centre.
Where to recycle woven polypropylene bags?
Polypropylene can be recycled but every council has its own policies, so confirm this with your local authority. You can also find advice on the Recycle Now website. If you have large quantities, avoid mixing it with other plastic materials. Polypropylene products are often labelled with a “5” inside a recycling triangle.
Are woven polypropylene bags waterproof?
Tightly woven polypropylene is highly water repellent and weatherproof. However, because it is breathable, moisture from the air can still enter unless an additional coating or waterproof repellent is applied. Fully waterproof and washable coatings can be applied to either the inside or the outside of the material.
