What is Metem?
Metem is a 100% post-consumer recycled plastic made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). One of the most commonly used plastics in the U.S., post-consumer HDPE is a material or finished product that has served its single use and been diverted or recovered from waste destined for a landfill. It is used in products and packaging such as milk jugs, detergent bottles, margarine tubs and garbage containers. In fact, there are an estimated eight recycled milk jugs per pound of Metem.
Manufactured by Metem Plastics, this maintenance-free material is used in a variety of applications where high durability is required, including in wet and dry spaces as well as indoors and outdoors.
