You Won’t Believe What Is Being Made Here
HDPE is a very common form of plastic, which can be identified by the number 2 in the recycling symbol. However, what most people don’t know is that they can recycle the plastic themselves, at home.
This is because this plastic can be melted relatively safely. The plastic is nonflammable, so putting it on a hot plate or inside a microwave will lead to it melting, instead of burning and/or catching fire.
As a result, you can take used HDPE, such as from milk bottles, and use them as building material for new things. This tutorial explains how you can make bricks, so check it out to see how you can do it yourself.
