PrimeWare’s Definition of Recyclable

Here is our definition of recylable to conclude our segment on definitions of: biodegradable, compostable, and recyclable.

Recycling is the process used or waste material so that it can be used again. Recyclable products can be collected, reprocessed, and reused to make new products. Some common recyclable materials are plastic, aluminum, cardboard, glass, and paper.

PrimeWare’s Definition of Compostable

Posted in Uncategorized by primeware on November 16, 2009

Compostable products are biodegradable, but better! When compostable products break down, they release rich nutrients into the soil. These products break down within several months in a composting facility. In order to break down properly, compostable products must go to a composting facility or a home composter. Compostable products should NOT be placed in recycling bins, as they will taint the recycling process. Compostability is a desirable feature in disposable tableware and cutlery, and compostable products like this are commonly made from bagasse and PLA (polylactic acid).

Is this similar to your definition of compostable? How would you define it?

PrimeWare’s Definition of Biodegradable

Posted in Uncategorized by primeware on November 12, 2009

Biodegradable means that the product will break down into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass in a reasonable amount of time. “Biodegradable” has no legal definition or enforcement, so many manufacturers use the term loosely. Biodegradable products can be thrown in the garbage, but remember that landfills lack the microorganisms needed to help break down these products, so keep waste at a minimum as much as possible.
