Can I recycle PVC?

Yes, you can recycle PVC. Thanks to its durability PVC (polyvinyl chloride) can easily be recycled. It can be reduced to polymer at high temperatures which are then reused in other products.

How do you dispose of PVC?

uPVC recycling is the first choice as this is environmentally friendly. The only other alternatives are incineration which produces toxic gases if not filtered or burying in landfill sites.
