Why do we focus on #5 plastics?
It’s the most used plastic and the most recyclable plus it's recycled here in the USA.
We throw a lot of plastic away and it ends up in the ocean making huge patches of micro plastic that harm wildlife and the oceans we depend on.
Thank you for donating #5 plastics. It’s important that the containers are all #5’s and that they are clean and free of food. Stacking them is great as well. We must inspect the donated containers to confirm the #5 logo. If we send Gimme 5 a mixed batch they will no longer accept plastics from us.
Thank you for your understanding and your help with recycling #5 plastic!
