Recycled HDPE (rHDPE) is predominantly used for the production of non-food packaging such as personal care products and household cleaning agents. HDPE recyclate can also be used for, for example, milk bottles (e.g. the Eco-Bottle containing 40 percent rHDPE).

By using rHDPE, greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by up to 92 per cent in comparison to virgin material.
