Degrading beach plastic
Is anyone using Dave’s machines with old degrading plastic that washes up on beaches? I’m wondering if the end recycled product are compromised by plastics that are trying to break down already (oxidising). I live in a really remote area of Australia which unfortunately has a ridiculous amount of plastic washing up on the shore from other countries. Is the best way for me to deal with this to shred the lot and then use the flotation method Dave put up for identifying plastics to sort the different materials?
Hi, be interested to her any answers you get. I’ve done a lot of beach cleaning too-so many plastic bottles. I’d like to start up a small beach litter recycling business. And to be honest I am more keen to just shred the stuff and store it until I find the best possible use for it…even if storage in the long term is the best idea in itself!
