Overall, both plastic and glass undergo a series of stages, beginning from the collection point of both items as well as culminating in reshaping the plastic and glass with the aid of a machine and assembling the new products.
In the first stage, the plastic and glasses are collected and sorted out based on the thickness, quality and colour, and respectively then both items are separated for different processing stages. The sorted glass undergoes crushing and washing for removing the impurities. In the subsequent stage, these clean glass pieces melted and reshaped with the assistance of different machines.
Whereas categorized plastic went for the bundling and shredding process, once it has been done, the micro-sized plastic segments are washed, melted and reshaped by the use of the same machine. Eventually, both glasses and plastic were assembled as new products.
