What #5s do you accept? Will you accept #5 plastic bags or film through Preserve Gimme 5?
We will accept any stamped, clean #5. Of course, some #5 plastic is easier to recycle than others. We prefer rigid containers (like yogurt cups, food storage, etc.) and other approved #5s (check out the list here).
Unfortunately, the material properties of #5 film (used in bags, for example) are quite different from the properties of rigid #5 plastic (dairy containers, for example). We're currently unable to recycle #5 film.
