The chart below shows the process of waste plastic recycling.

Summarize the information by selecting and reporting the main features, and make comparisons where relevant.



The diagram illustrates the process of recycling plastic.

It is evident from the diagram that there are six steps involved in the recycling process. First, the waste is separated and collected by plastic recycling units. These units load the plastic collected in trucks and transport them to a plastic factory. Next, this plastic material is kept in the depository for storage purposes. After that, the synthetic pile goes for processing. In the third step, it is inspected and sorted according to its make and type.

Once sorting is over, the plastic is sent for processing. The plastic material is shredded into flakes before being sent for washing. The washing is done with the help of biodegradable soap and water to remove impurities. The grounded plastic is packed for shipment in boxes manually. Eventually, this grounded vinyl is shipped to partner facilities where it is fabricated into different types of products to be exported in the market.

Thus, all steps are mandatory in the recycling of plastic, and omission of one single action can halt the whole procedure.
