Hello. I’m a collector from Kisumu Kenya, though I always do it only when I have a project going on. Operations might differ from country to country due to social dynamics and societal set up. What I always do is recruiting a few jobless people to help me with the collection and pay them per kg based on type of plastic. I always pay KSH15 which is USD0.15 per kg of HDPE and similar plastics and KSH10 for the likes of PET. I have even constructed wooden handcarts to increase productivity.
I’m working on a plastic housing prototype.
Hi there. Though this comes late, but I hope it gets helpful. I always do my calculations based on 1g/cm³. The official density is 0.97g/cm³ so I do round it off to accommodate wastage and givee easy time with calculations, though at timea materials do come out lighter due to air build up. Your beam will thus be around 15kgs.
hey Rajan. what is your screw size; diameter and length. And, can it extrude a 4″ by 4″ beam? I’m in the process of building one, and main main products are going to be fencing posts.
