Script for video: Plastics - how are they recycled?
Transcript for the Recycle Now video on how plastics are recycled.
In the UK we use millions of plastic bottles, tubs and trays a day.
Most of these could be recycled into really useful things; here's how.
Bottles, tubs and trays are separated from other recyclable materials by hand or machine.
They are cleaned and sorted by plastic type using clever technology, then sorted by colour - blue, natural, green and mixed - and are shredded, washed, melted and reformed into pellets which can then be used to make fleeces and footy shirts as well as toys, chairs and picnic benches or… more plastic bottles
