Plastic Recycling Symbol No 3
PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and V (vinyl) is tough and weathers well, so it's commonly used for things like piping and siding. PVC is also cheap, so it's found in plenty of products and packaging. Because chlorine is part of PVC, it can result in the release of highly dangerous dioxins during manufacturing. Remember to never burn PVC, because it releases toxins.
Found in: Shampoo and cooking oil bottles, blister packaging, wire jacketing, siding, windows, piping
How to recycle it: PVC and V can rarely be recycled, but it's accepted by some plastic lumber makers. If you need to dispose of either material, ask your local waste management to see if you should put it in the trash or drop it off at a collection center.
Recycled into: Decks, paneling, mud-flaps, roadway gutters, flooring, cables, speed bumps, mats
