What is Plastic Waste?

Plastic waste, or as it is commonly known, plastic pollution, is the accumulation of synthetic plastic items in the environment to the point where they pose a threat to wildlife and their habitats, as well as human populations. Plastic is a polymeric substance, which means it has very massive molecules that resemble lengthy chains made up of an apparently endless succession of interconnecting links. Natural polymers like rubber and silk are abundant, but because they do not remain in the environment, nature’s “plastics” have not been linked to pollution. 

Today’s normal consumer, on the other hand, comes into regular contact with a variety of plastic materials that have been engineered to combat natural decay processes. Plastic is a life-changing material, but poor waste management has led to significant pollution due to its very characteristics. They’re long-lasting, sturdy, light, water-resistant, and reasonably simple and affordable to make. The majority of modern plastics are made from fossil fuels such as natural gas or petroleum, but as new technology develops, polymers derived from renewable materials such as corn or cotton are becoming more common. With proper management,plastic would continue being useful to us without all the issues its pollution poses.

Plastic is almost irreplaceable in many applications due to its low cost, strength, light weight, and corrosion resistance. Plastic is most commonly used in packaging and building components such as pipelines. Due to its low cost properties, it is being used andmanufactored enlarge quantities. However, this is not a problem as long as we know when to use it less and to recycle it.

Plastic Waste Reduction Middlesbrough

We understand that the issue of finding a substitute that combines all of the attractive plastic features makes replacing plastic with other materials neither simple nor straightforward. Because of the quantity of water or natural resources consumed in their manufacturing, biodegradable alternatives, such as specific plastics, paper, or cardboard, may have a bigger greenhouse footprint.

Despite all of this, it is still possible to reduce the amount of plastic waste your company makes. One of the ways you can get an idea of where to start reducing plastic waste or even how, is through getting a plastic waste audit from us. The best way is for us to merely use what is required and reject excessive amounts.

Plastic Waste Recycling Middlesbrough

Our mission at Middlesbrough Waste is to integrate recycling into every waste management solution that we provide. Waste plastic can be recycled and repurposed to reduce the requirement for virgin plastics and increase the economic value of waste. Recently, recycled plastic has been used to make furniture, roads, packaging, and clothing. Plastic can be created from fossil or renewable resources. Both can be used to manufacture highly durable, non-biodegradable polymers, as well as biodegradable or compostable plastics.

Plastic waste recycling begins with the collection of the waste to be transported to recycling facilities. At the recycling centres, the waste goes through the sorting process. A hand sort is performed to ensure that all pollutants have been removed after most of the sorting has been automated. After sorting and cleaning, it will be shredded into flakes or melted into pellets before giving new shapes to new products.
