MRF will then use baler to compress the sorted post-consumer plastic waste into bales and sell them to specialized plastic recycling companies. Plastic recycling companies will firstly use shredders for primary size reduction and then use post-consumer plastic waste granulators for further size reduction. Secondly they will clean the granulated pieces with hot washer, friction washer and floating washer depending on different waste types.
