Can I recycle any strap?

Signode will only accept chopped PET (Polyester) strap. Chopped PET strap can be any colour but must not be contaminated by any other waste or contaminant or other types of plastic strap ie. Polypropylene strap (PP) or any woven fibre straps are not accepted in this program (refer to suitable strap options in this brochure).

What is the difference between PET and PP strap?

PET strap is Polyester strap which is typically much stronger than PP strap. PET is commonly used to secure palletised loads whilst PP is used for lighter applications (Eg around cartons or other light duty applications). PP is also considerably easier to bend and split than PET strap. If in doubt contact Signode on 1800 685 824 to confirm.
