How can we recycle plastic?
Plastics can be recycled by the following steps :
Step 1-Sorting: Plastics are sorted according to the polymer type.
Step 2-Shredding: In this step, Plastics are shredded into smaller pieces.
Step 3: Washing: Plastics are washed thoroughly.
Step 4: Melting: Plastics are melted in this step to form a fused product.
Step 5: Pellets: The molten plastic is formed into pellets and made into new products.
Sorting is mainly done automatically with a manual sort to ensure all contaminants have been removed
Once sorted and cleaned, plastic can either be shredded into flakes or melt processed to form pellets before finally being moulded into new products.
