Recycling DuPont™ Tyvek®

DuPont Tyvek® is made from 100% high-density polyethylene (HDPE). For this reason, Tyvek® or products made from Tyvek® can be mechanically recycled into products such as underground cable protection piping, automotive parts, blown film, packaging cores and trays. Products made from Tyvek® which are printed, glued, welded or sewn can recycled. This includes banners, signs, envelopes and other print products made with Tyvek®. DuPont has set up a network of recyclers who have agreed to take back items made from Tyvek® for mechanical recycling into other products. The items sent for recycling must not have been in contact with any hazardous substance. For more information, please contact us at:
