We can take all non-electrical hard plastic products (it does not matter if the product is made out several types of plastic) such as:
Electrical items with plastic casing should still be put into the waste electrical, electronic equipment containers – this allows the metal components to be stripped out before the plastic is recycled.
Plastics make up around 7% of the average household dustbin and the amount of plastic waste generated annually in the UK is estimated to be nearly 3 million tonnes. It is therefore vital that we recycle plastic, as it’s made from oil and its production uses 8% of the world’s oil, which is one of the earth’s main non-renewable energy sources, and is running out fast.
The plastic will be sorted, washed and then granulated. Once in this state it can be used as a raw material by manufacturers and made into items like carrier bags, drain pipes, garden furniture, fleece jackets and sleeping bags, etc.
