Material labelling

Plastic containers normally have a material labelling (of 1–7), where the letter and number combination is given inside a triangle. The labelling is not mandatory on packages, and if it isn’t found you can still recycle the plastics. All plastics except PVC plastics, marked with the label 03, are suitable for recycling. PVC is used relatively seldom for packages, but imported work tools and toys are sometimes wrapped in it. More information about plastics and their recycling is found for example on Finnish Packaging Recycling RINKI’s website.
