What is rigid plastic packaging?
Rigid plastic packaging has become a very commonly used material. It encases many everyday products – from foods like take-out sushi and grocery store muffins, to consumer goods like tools and electronics. Rigid plastic takes a number of forms, from the material found wrapped around toys and other new items, to that used to make video cassette and CD jewel cases. Some common examples include: • consumer goods packaging for electronics, tools and household items • food packaging, including deli trays and take-out containers for salads, sandwiches, sushi and baked goods • CD and DVD jewel cases • VHS and audio cassette exterior cases Rigid plastic packaging can be recycled in the Blue Box Program.
