ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene)


The identification codes show which type of material was used to make a product. That means it doesn’t necessarily indicate a product’s recyclability. To check if something is recyclable, either search for the individual item on our A-Z function (opens in a new window), or check on our recycling page (opens in a new window).

ABS is a hard plastic used to make things like toys, phones, TVs or computer keyboard keys. Most hard plastics can be taken to two of north London's reuse and recycling centres where we collect them for recycling (see below).
