Plastic covers a range of synthetic or semi-synthetic
polymerization products. They are composed of organic condensation
or addition polymers and may contain other substances to improve
performance or economics. There are few natural polymers generally
considered to be "plastics". Plastics can be formed into objects or
films or fibers. Their name is derived from the fact that many are
malleable, having the property of plasticity.
Plastic recycling is the process of
recovering scrap or waste plastics and reprocessing the material
into useful products.
Ways of treating plastic waste:
Burning plastic which
harms the environment by releasing toxic gas into the atmosphere!
Burying plastic in the
Recycling the waste and sending it to be re-used by the factories.
