The drawback is the runtime won’t warn you if you reuse an object without clearing it first. If you always get a new on, NullPointerException will warn you if you fail to allocate.
Plastics are often marked with a Resin Code to indicate how they should be recycled. Only types 1 and 2 are actually recycled. The chasing arrows symbol just means the plastic could in theory be recycled. Type (3) PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) is never recycled. There is no law in the USA limiting how the symbol is used. Manufacturers can put in on anything they please. Bag-It
