Post-consumer recycled content polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) is plastic made from a used PET product that has been recycled into usable material. Dart’s rPET products are made from recycled water and soda bottles. Our rPET products received an FDA No Objection Letter, which deems rPET safe for use in new food and beverage packaging.

After a consumer recycles a PET product, it’s washed, sorted and ground into flakes or pellets. This material can then become a range of products, including cups and containers. Products made from rPET are marked by a “1” within a solid triangle – its resin identification code. This is usually found on or near the bottom of the product.


Clear, thermoformed rPET without ink or labels is accepted for recycling throughout most of the US and Canada. Using rPET products helps close the loop on PET recycling.

Packaging that is less than 2”x2”x2” or black in color is unlikely to be recovered at typical sorting facilities.

For the most accurate information, we recommend checking with your local municipality or waste hauler to see if rPET is accepted in your community’s recycling program.
