      Dear EWB staff,

      What type of plastic is burnt in the school incinerators (e.g LDPE and HDPE)? Also what form of plastic bottles are sold (“People can sell plastic bottles to waste collectors” -Design area 7 waste and reuse background)?

      Thanks

        Hi James,

        Thanks for reaching out. Mostly LDPE, but certainly some amount of HDPE.

        Your usual PET bottles that they might sell soda or water in. Hope that helps.

        Cheers,
        Sai
