Recycling beach plastic

20/04/2018 at 14:27

I’m sure this question has been asked before, but I haven’t found a search tool in the forum to look it up. My question is : is it possible to recycle plastic washed up from the ocean on a beach ? Oftentime it looks like the salt and the sun have partially “degraded” it somehow. So I wonder if it requires special treatment, special washing or not. Thanks in advance !

Hi there,
The search function is at the bottom of the page on this forum.
The answer for your question would be: Yes, you need to wash off any dirt that might compromise the structure of the plastic product you plan on making. If it is clean, it also allows further recycling..

Thanks for your answer @jegor-m. Good to know it works in theory. And now I know how to look up things here !
