How To Recycle HDPE Plastic The Easy Way

How To Recycle HDPE Plastic The Easy Way

After spending 2 hours cutting up a single milk bottle with kitchen shears, I knew I couldn’t do it again.

 I felt like a late night infomercial and may have actually uttered the phrase, “There has to be a better way!”

 Turning old milk jugs and bottle caps into useable stock for making. In this short video I process a 2 milk bottles and about half a dozen bottle tops into a 1 1/2″ x 3″ x 5″ turning block.

You could just as easily press this into sheet material for use in box
inlays or scroll saw art. The possibilities are endless. The total
processing time was under an hour from bottle to blank! Less than
waiting for a glue up! 


And the result is a stunningly colorful blank!
