Plastic bottles and containers are widely used in our daily life to store liquids such as water, soft drinks, beverages, oil, medicine, detergents, cosmetics, shampoo, milk etc. They bring great convenience to our life, but improper disposal of waste plastic containers produces harm to the environment because plastic is not normally biodegradable. Plastic bottle recycling really make great sense. Some plastic bottle recycling machines like plastic bottle shredder can help to make whole recycling much easier.
In its recycling process, waste plastic bottles and containers are firstly taken to materials recovery facilities (MRF) where they are separated from other materials and further sorted based on raw material type and colors. The sorted post-consumer plastic bottles and containers are then compressed into bales and sold to specialized plastic recycling companies.

At plastic recycling companies, bales will be broken up, labels of bottles and caps are removed by label re-moving machinery. Then the main body of plastic bottles and containers is shredded into small pieces. After shredding, the small plastic shreds will then be washed clean by a hot washer, friction washer and floating washer. The cleaned plastic pieces are dried by a de-watering machine and dryer.
