THE IMPORTANCE OF PLASTIC RECYCLING
When you ask someone why it is that they don’t make an effort with their plastic recycling, there are a few common notable responses. At Thorntons Recycling, we understand that not everyone has the passion and motivation for plastic recycling that we do, but we aim to educate and inform the public and hopefully get more and more Adelaide residents involved.
The number one reason that we hear when it comes to why people do not perform plastic recycling in Adelaide is that it’s inconvenient. No one is more dedicated to making the plastic recycling process as quick and easy for you like the team at Thornton’s!
We operate a convenient drive-thru service and count your plastic recycling for you and present you with your refund immediately. Additionally, we run a pick-up service for commercial clients that is timely and affordable.

Although there are a minority of people interested in formulating reasons why they don’t want to participate in plastic recycling in Adelaide, we decided it would be more worthwhile to justify exactly why you should be plastic recycling.
REDUCES ENERGY COST
Manufacturers save on energy costs as they aren’t required to create a new product from raw natural resources. Plastic recycling saves Adelaide businesses on energy consumption, which translates into lower costs of production.
When an Adelaide company can save money on production costs, they often pass these savings on to the consumers; it’s good to be a local!
LESS WASTE ENDS UP IN A LANDFILL
How to deal with the abundance of dumps we have created will be one the most challenging environmental puzzles for us to solve during our lifetime. While answering this problem outright is a highly complex task, we don’t exactly know how to prevent it from getting worse.
Plastic recycling with Thorntons has a direct effect on allowing products to end up in Adelaide landfills.
While paper recycling saves millions of trees, plastic recycling protects our wildlife and especially our marine creatures from harm. Plastic straws, bags and other products are consumed by sea life as they mistake them as edible.
If we want our children to enjoy the ocean as we did when we were younger, then plastic recycling in Adelaide is paramount.
When you purchase recycled products, it drives the demand up and works in a cyclical pattern, which encourages more plastic recycling in Adelaide. Try to buy recycled or second hand whenever you can.
It’s already blistering hot in the Adelaide summer so let’s help the environment and reduce our carbon emissions through plastic recycling. Greenhouse gases, formed from the creation of new plastic, trap heat in the atmosphere.
