Currently, the best known way to recycle plastic is by depositing plastic waste in the yellow container.  Once here, the people in charge of handling it will be in charge of collecting the waste to take it to a specialized recycling center.

The waste generated at home can range from plastic bottles to bags. Bricks, fruit nets, transparent or silver paper, aerosols, polystyrene trays, packaging for other products, etc. are also common.

The first measure to recycle plastic at home is to include a specific trash can for this waste. Ideally, this bin should be placed next to the main garbage bin in the house. In this way, when throwing the waste we can more easily separate the plastic from the rest.

Another possible option is to purchase a domestic plastic shredder. This machine shreds the plastic so that it takes up very little space. The waste that we place both in the bucket and in the shredder will then be taken to the yellow container.
