generally less rigid and chemically resistant than HDPE. Being a softer
material, LDPE can be used for squeeze plastic bottles and other flexible

manufacturing of some flexible lids and bottles, as well as in wire and
cable applications. LDPE is significantly more costly than HDPE.
LDPE plastic is also commonly recycled mostly from commercial sources like businesses that generate shrink-wrap, as well as many agricultural endeavors. Plastic shopping bags, which are made from LDPE, are frequently collected by grocery and drug stores for recycling. Includes Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LLDPE).
