Will you recycle the plastics that you collect?

Posted on October 28 2012

Question submitted by Lewiston High School

The tiny pieces of plastic we pick up in our nets will be counted, put in jars, labeled, dried, capped and archived.

The macroplastics like the buoys, tether ball, and large pieces of styrofoam will be archived at SEA if they are of interest, otherwise they will be recycled in Hawaii, if possible.

The tether ball and bottle with Japanese writing brought aboard will either be kept at SEA or recycled in Hawaii, if possible.
