Plastics recycling

Plastics are inexpensive, lightweight, and durable materials, which can readily be molded into a variety of products that find use in a wide range of applications. Therefore, the production of plastics has increased markedly over the last 60 years. However, current levels of their usage and disposal generate several environmental problems.

Around 4 percent of world oil and gas production, a non-renewable resource, is used as feedstock for plastics, and a further 3–4% is expended to provide energy for their manufacture.

A major portion of plastic produced each year is used to make disposable items of packaging or other short-lived products that are discarded within a year of manufacture. These two observations alone indicate that our current use of plastics is not sustainable.

In addition, because of the durability of the polymers involved, substantial quantities of discarded end-of-life plastics are accumulating as debris in landfills and in natural habitats worldwide.

Plastic Recycling Process

Plastic recycling is broken up into a few distinct steps. These steps remain the same for most types of recycling facilities, but certain steps can be combined or omitted in some situations

Step 1: Collection

The first step in the recycling process is always collecting the plastic material that is to be recycled.

This step is completely reliant upon businesses, restaurants, and the public to dispose of their plastic waste in the correct place. If plastic waste is disposed of in normal trash bins, it will not be recycled, so it is extremely important to separate common waste and plastic waste.

Step 2: Sorting

After plastics are collected and transported to a recycling facility, the next step is sorting.

Machines sort plastics into different areas based upon a multitude of properties that are often dependent upon the recycling facility or what final product is being produced.

Plastics are usually sorted in a few common ways, such as the type of plastic (material it is made with), the color of the plastic, or even how it was made. This is important because diverse types of plastics must be processed in diverse ways and some recycling facilities are only capable of recycling one type of plastic. If the wrong type of plastic is processed at the incorrect facility it can reduce the efficiency of the entire process and require the entire batch to be sent back again for resorting

Step 3: Washing

Just like with clothes, fruits/vegetables, and many other things, plastics must be washed before they are further processed. The goal of this step is to remove impurities and everything that is not made from plastic.

Most containers and packages have labels, adhesives, or even food residue that must be removed. This non-plastic waste cannot be recycled and can cause the final product to have poor structural integrity

Step 4: Resizing

Resizing consists of shredding or granulating the plastic waste into small particles. This increases the surface area of the plastic, making it easier to process, reshape, and transport if needed.

Step 5: Identification and separation of plastics

The identification and separation of plastics are when the now small plastic particles are tested to determine their quality and class.

Step 6: Compounding

Compounding is when the small particles are smashed and melted together into plastic pellets

As we notice there are many non-recyclable products, and it is clear why we treat them as non-recyclable products such as diapers.

Why choose Big Bird for recycling services?

To answer the question of why Big Bird chose recycling services. We must set the rules of why to choose any company for recycling services.

There are 4 major points consumers should look for before deciding on choosing a recycling services company.

  • Recycling certification:

We in Big Bird got a recycling certification. Any recycling services provider needs to get one. Having a recycling certification could show consumers that their recycling services are reputable, also recycling services providers must attend a training course to get trained on the best recycling methods available for each element.

When the certification is given to a company you are – as a customer – informed that this company is more skilled and knowledgeable in recycling services. We in Big Bird are recycling certified.

  • The company applies the single-stream method 

What is single-stream recycling? Single-stream recycling means the process which allows the combination of many different recyclable elements. This method effectively reduces the collection costs and saves the company time and energy, also it makes it much easier for both companies and consumers to process recyclable elements.

For sure we at Big Bird follow the single stream method as a major method of recycling as it makes it easier it saves time and energy for us and our customers.

  • Avoid companies with recycling violations history:

Recycling violations differ from a company not following the safety guideline related the waste management to a company that does not separate the recyclables into different containers.

These violations can owe the companies fines that are expected to be +50 thousand dollars. So, violations of the recycling services company are a good alert to look elsewhere for another recycling provider which should be a reliable and sustainable recycling service company.

We in Big Bird have a clean sheet of recycling violations that reflects a non-violation history of all that is related to recycling services or waste management.
