The diagram below shows the process for recycling plastic bottles.
The process diagram illustrates how plastic bottles are recycled. Overall, there are nine steps starting with bottles being thrown in the trash, moving through factory processes using specialized machinery, and ending with products being made from recycled plastic, whereupon the process restarts.
Starting with the first three steps, which involve collecting and sorting plastic Initially plastic bottles are thrown into garbage bins. Next, garbage trucks collect these bins. Subsequently, the plastic bottles end-up in a recycling centre where they are sorted by hand into bottles that can be recycled and bottles that cannot.
The next stages focus on preparing recyclable plastic. This begins with compressing the recyclable plastic bottles together. These compressed blocks are then fed into a grinder that crushes them and transfers them into a tank where they are washed. Later, the plastic is put into a machine that transforms it into pellets.
Looking at the remaining stages, the plastic pellets are heated and turned into raw material suitable for making plastic products, which is stacked on pallets for storage. After this, finished products are created from the raw material. Some finished goods may end up being thrown out into trash cans and subsequently re-entering the recycling process. [186 words]
