What is Plastic Waste Recycling?
Plastic waste recycling is one of the ways in which we make sure that plastic waste is eliminated or at least, reduced. When we talk of plastic waste, we mean the excess plastic that is always seen in our environment and the oceans. It is also a waste from our own commercial practises. Recycling this plastic waste comes with its own benefits.
- Provides the sector with a long-term supply of raw materials.
- Reduces the environmental impact of plastic-rich products, particularly carbon dioxide significantly.
- Reduces the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills in the UK.
- Avoids depletion of the world’s oil reserves
- Produces less new, virgin polymers and uses less energy.
- Reduces human effect on the environment through instilling the appropriate values and behaviors.
In the United Kingdom, the recycling of “post-commercial” industrial and agricultural films is widely established. However, the United Kingdom still has to expand its chemical recycling capacity, and the technology requires further investment and development before it can be used on a large scale.
How is Plastic Waste Managed?
There are several procedures and organizations involved in converting plastic recycling into new products. To recycle plastic, you must go through a series of steps.
These steps entail gathering, sorting, and recycling the plastic so that it can be used in new products:
Collection: Users drop plastic into a recycling container, which is then collected.
Sorting: facilities separate plastic from other materials and sort it into several categories.
Reprocessing: Plastic is then washed, powdered into flakes, heated, and extruded into new pellets during reprocessing.
Plastic that is collected from your business and sent to one of our state-of-the-art Material Recovery Facilities (MRF), which classifies plastic by type and separates it from non-plastic, and/or a Plastic Recovery Facility (PRF), which separates plastic from non-plastic. Sorting equipment, such as an optical sorter, is used at these facilities to distinguish between different types of plastics. The plastic is then washed, shredded, and sorted again at a reprocessing facility. After that, the plastic is melted down and extruded into fresh recycled plastic pellets. Then these pellets can be melted and blown to new plastic jars and bottles.
