Plastic Recycling

Plastic is a popular material that we encounter on a regular basis. While some plastic objects are intended to be used only once, others are designed to last a very long time. Whatever the plastic object is, there will usually come a time when the consumer no longer needs or wants that item. Maybe it’s empty, or broken, or no longer useful. If the item can’t be reused, then at this point we’re usually encouraged to drop it off in a recycling bin. However, for the plastic that actually does get to a recycling facility, what happens to it? Read on to learn about two different ways that old plastic objects become ready to be made into new plastic items!
