[greenyes] Colored versus Uncolored PET and HDPE Bottles and Jugs - Is the distinction helpful considering today's plastic resin recycling markets?


Folks,

I am not at all familar with existing plastic resin recycling markets hence my question: Regarding PET and HDPE bottles and jugs, generally speaking how necessary is it to distinguish uncolored from colored in the context of sensitivity of plastic resins to existing recycling markets? At least one statewide waste composition study in 2000 made the distinction while other more current studies do not. Is making the distinction in such studies generally helpful or an unnecessary exercise today?
