About us

We're Precious Plastic Munich, a local chapter of the global Precious Plastic movement.

We've build a few machines (shredder, compression, injection) but are mostly looking to experiment with small scale recycling tools and share all that we do.

Plastic Collection

To make stuff, we need your clean plastics. Here's how you can help us with that.

We're currently looking for HDPE plastic. That's your typical shampoo bottle or bottle / milk carton cap. Usually, they will have a type 2 recycling symbol on them as well. If it doesn't have a symbol like that on it, we likely won't be able to use it. If you happen to have a lot of plastics of one kind without any recycling markings on them, and think they could be HDPE, let us know and we'll try to get that sorted.

Please clean your plastic before bringing it to us. The easiest way is to just drop it in the dishwasher with your regular dishes. If you can, remove all labels as well. That saves us a huge amount of work.

Lastly, you can bring your clean plastics to one of our drop off points. You can find them and their opening times in the map below.

We're still looking for more places to collect plastic, so if you want to help us out by setting up a dropoff point at your home or workplace, let us know.
