Plastic waste recycling is the series of different process in which the used plastic items such as used PET bottle, poly bag, tubs, trays, crate and other industrial and domestic used plastic is separated in different qualities and then reprocessed through lengthy multi activities of plastic recycling machines available in the market.
The process of recycling transforms the old used items of plastic into the reusable raw material or the finished product through which any domestic or industrial consumable can be manufactured. All these activities in the initial stages were done through the manual process, but nowadays there are different technological machines available in the market which have made the recycling process simple and easy. People are making the good amount of profit from the recycling business.
Stages in Plastic Recycling
Plastic recycling is the process of different sub activities which are performed to convert the plastic waste into the useful product. Waste recycling plastic companies use different types of machines depending on the scale of business and space. The recycling of plastic waste is done through a series of activities as given below:
This is the first activities done by the waste recycling plastic companies. The plastic waste is collected from different places. These places can be dump yards, municipal dump yards, industries, hotels, and hospitals. Waste management plastic companies hire some people for collecting the plastic waste from different places, and the big player in the recycling industries get the waste at their place only.
Once the plastic waste is collected at a common place, now the next step is the separate different qualities of plastic into sub categories. The act of sorting the plastic is done manually through expert and trained employees.
This is the stage of the plastic recycling machines where the plastic is crushed into small parts and send for further process.
At this stage, the crushed material is sent to next step where this waste plastic is cleaned by using different cleaning chemicals with water that helps to clear the paint and another type of dirt from the plastic.
After the waste plastic is washed, the next step of the plastic waste recycling machine is to send the material for melting through a different conveyor belt.
Once all material is melted the next step properly makes a thread of the plastic waste material after going through a tank of water that make the melted plastic cooled without wasting any time.
Plastic Polymer cutting
once the thread is made the next step of plastic recycling machine is to cut down the thread into small parts and make a plastic polymer.
