What is Plastic Waste?

Plastic waste can be defined as “discarded plastic objects (e.g. plastic bottles) deposited in the environment that negatively impact wildlife habitats, wildlife and humans.”  Humans manufacture a considerable amount of plastic because it is inexpensive and durable. Chemically, most plastics are resistant to many natural processes that cause them to break down, making them slow to decompose.

Together, these two elements enable a lot of plastic to enter and pollute the ecosystem in the form of poorly managed waste. Plastics account for about ten percent of all disposed waste. Plastics come in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the materials used and the processing technique used. Land-based plastic pollution endangers plants and animals, including humans and those found in the oceans and other water bodies negatively affect the maine and aquatic lives, which negatively impacts the environment.

Plastic Waste Management Practises

Plastic is encroaching on the world. It is important for everyone to remember that the floating pile of plastic waste now covers 1.6 million square kilometers of ocean. Unless we act now with managing plastic waste, we will not be able to save the planet. A large amount of plastic ends up in landfills (or the ocean), but there are better ways to dispose of it. A good example of this is recycling. Finding a new purpose for plastic waste is a second option. With adequate scrubbing and cleaning, plastic can be burned for energy, as it is in Sweden, where roughly half of all waste is burned for electricity.

A third option is to prohibit the use of certain plastics. Most of these plastics are the ones referred to as single use plastics. It is hard to recycle them and they cause the most pollution as a result. Working with a waste management business that is easy to reach and has a strong customer-centric attitude can ensure that you manage your plastic waste effectively and that you  receive excellent service throughout your partnership.

Plastic Waste Recycling Process

As part of the recycling process, plastics are collected, sorted, shredded, washed, melted, and then remade into new plastic products.

Collection: Recycling plastic waste begins with the collection of waste from businesses and institutions. Our collections processes are easy and designed to fit your business needs.  After collection we will then transfer your waste to recycling centres.

Sorting:  The next stage in the recycling process is sorting. It is vital that recyclers separate plastics of various forms from one another. Colour, thickness, and intended use can also be used to classify and sort plastics. Machines handle this process in the recycling facility, increasing efficiency and avoiding contamination of the final component.

Washing:  Washing is an important stage in the plastic recycling process because it removes contaminants that might slow down or destroy a batch of recycled plastic. Product labels and adhesives, as well as dirt and food residue, are common contaminants targeted in this stage.

Shredding:  After that, the plastic is sent into shredders, which shred it into considerably smaller pieces. Unlike solid plastic items, these smaller bits can be processed for reuse in subsequent phases. The resized plastic fragments can also be used in various applications without further processing, such as as an asphalt additive or simply sold as a raw material.

Melting: The shredded plastic particles are turned into a useable product for manufacturers in the last stage of the plastic recycling process. Pellets are formed by melting and crushing shredded plastic. Then the pellets or the melted plastic will be blown out to create new plastic materials.
