These Plastic Recycling Machines Let People Do Their Own Recycling

These plastic recycling machines brings the process of recycling process much closer to home. Less than 10% of all the plastics that are used actually end up being recycled, so to improve this number, Dave Hakkens designed a series of machines that are meant to be used locally to recycle plastics.

These machines are built to industry standards, but are designed to let the end user of plastics be responsible for their own recycling process. The ‘Precious Plastics’ machine is capable of shredding plastic objects into small pieces, which can then be turned into new items like lamps and waste paper bins. Dave plans to set up a shop in Sweden and publish the instructions on how to make his recycled plastic creations.
