Full Scale is proud to offer compliant, child-resistant pop top containers that are 100% recyclable. As the cannabis packaging regulations continue to fluctuate from state to state, we set out to design and manufacture our own line of containers that meet and exceed the packaging and recycling requirements everywhere!
We use BPA-Free Polypropylene Plastic #5, or PP5, for our line of pop top containers. Today, this type of plastic is accepted by nearly all recycling services. Most city single-stream recycling services will accept used cannabis pop top containers as long as they are clean, dry and display one of the acceptable recycling codes, like PP5.
PP5 is strong and tough so it is sturdy enough to be molded into a single piece and hold up when tested for child resistance. Some other types of plastic containers with multiple pieces, like a lid, may not be recyclable or even child-resistant. Our bottle is one solid piece so there’s no question if the cap recycles. Every size of Full Scale pop top container is tested and certified child-resistant. The rigidness of PP5 and our bottle design reinforces the product’s air-tight, odor-proof seal which is very important for flower packaging. Thin, flimsy containers may let air slip in over time and diminish the aroma of the product.
Other benefits of using pop top containers made with PP5 is that they provide UV light blocking and thermal resistance. With our opaque PP5 containers, UV light is blocked from the product inside, unlike clear glass containers. Light blocking is important for cannabis flower packaging because of the plant’s sensitive nature. Our pop tops also provide a level of thermal resistance to keep the product inside as safe as can be. The growers scrutinized for weeks about how much light to apply to the flowering plants before harvest, wouldn’t it make sense to keep the cured buds away from UV light and excess heat. Finally, our line of containers is made with BPA-Free plastic, meaning our products are even safe to drink out of.
