How much does it cost to properly recycle discarded plastic? Well on our end of small scale consumers, the cost may be quite expensive considering as a whole, most plastic recyclers would have to do the trick in bulks.
But here is an interesting plastic recycling solution for you called the Precious Plastic, something ideal for small-scale consumers.
The machines were designed by Design Academy Eindhoven student Dave Hakkens. He was able to come up with three machines capable of shredding, melting and molding plastic which sounds pretty neat.
The parts for the Precious Plastics’ machines were sourced from a scrapyard and fashioned into three units that can manipulate plastic trash. Hakkens was able to fabricate an injection-molded spinning top, rotation-molded rubbish bin, and lamp, and has plans to publish blueprints for his inventions in order to let others expand the range of products and refine the machines.
