  2. Sorting: The collected plastics are sorted based on their resin type and color to ensure effective recycling.
  3. Cleaning: Plastics undergo thorough cleaning to remove any contaminants or residues.
  4. Shredding: The cleaned plastics are shredded into small flakes or granules to facilitate further processing.
  5. Melting and Pelletizing: The shredded plastic is melted and formed into pellets, which can be used as raw materials for manufacturing new products.
  6. Manufacturing: The recycled plastic pellets are then used by manufacturers to produce a wide range of products, from packaging materials to consumer goods.
