DuPont™ Tyvek® and the Environment

DuPont™ Tyvek® envelopes are made of high density polyethylene which is 100% recyclable. Tyvek® can also be safely incinerated, and because it yields water and carbon dioxide, it essentially leaves no residue for disposal. And, if recycling or incineration are not options, Tyvek® can be safely landfilled. Because it is chemically inert and contains no binders, Tyvek® will not leach into groundwater.

DuPont™ Tyvek® Envelopes Nationwide Recycling Program

DuPont manages a nationwide recycling program that collects used Tyvek® envelopes – even printed Tyvek® envelopes - and recycles them into other useful materials that provide sound alternatives to the use of wood, including park benches, playground equipment, etc.  To help you recycle all of your used Tyvek® envelopes, we’ve put the recycling infrastructure in place.  Choose the way you wish to participate:

Please send only Tyvek® bags and envelopes.

For Small Quantities
(less than 25 envelopes/month)
Turn any Tyvek® envelope inside out, so the unprinted white surface shows on the outside. Stuff the inside-out Tyvek® envelope with other used Tyvek® envelopes for recycling.

Address and mail the envelope to:

Phone: 804-518-2930
