Recycle Plastic

How is Plastic Recycled?

    1. Plastic bottles for recycling are collected from bottle banks or from kerbside recycling boxes.

    2. The bottles are taken away by lorry to be sorted and then squashed into big blocks.

    3. The blocks are then taken to a factory, where they are cut up into small flakes like little, colourful corn flakes.

    4. The flakes are washed and dried, then taken away to be melted and made into new plastic objects.
