Recycling Journey of a Plastic Non-Bottle Container

The flowchart below highlights how a typical non-bottle container travels through the entire recycling process.  Although a yogurt tub is used in the flowchart, the same steps can be taken to recycle many other types of non-bottle containers including:  tubs for butter/sour cream, smaller single serve yogurt containers, cups, to-go clamshells, small storage crates and small buckets.  The video below takes the flowchart further with detailed descriptions of each step in the process.
