CAN THERMOFORM PACKAGES JUST BE RECYCLED?

It’s important to realize that blister packs are recyclable, but are often not recycled.  Even if thermoforms are collected in residential recycling programs, many plastic reprocessing facilities do not want it because they see the material as a contaminant.

The use of thermoformed plastic packaging is widespread.  However, some people believe that blister packs just aren't that common anymore.  Maybe it's just that we've grown accustomed to not "seeing" it.  It has become invisible, and what is invisible to the mind is invisible to the eye. Let's start training our eyes and make the invisible visible again.
