The lifecycle of plastics starts with the collection of waste containing plastics. Then, after 5 to 10 days, this collected waste is transported to the recycling centre. After that, this product is bundled according to thickness and quality. Further, it is shredded in the shredder and purified by the washer. In the same machine, the purified plastic is melted and reshaped into new products, and the same cycle follows after 3 to 8 weeks.
