The diagram illustrates the process by which plastic is recycled for resale and use on the open market.   Overall, there are six steps beginning with picking up the plastic to be recycled and ending with reformation into new goods and sale.

At the start, waste is separated into its different types, and the plastic component picked up, and subsequently removed by truck to a plastic factory for storage and processing.  After being stored in a warehouse for some time, the plastic is inspected by hand, and further sorted and graded in preparation for the next stage.

Following inspection and sorting, the plastic is graded into tiny pieces in a chopping machine and cleaned using environmentally friendly soap and water.  The resulting material is now known as plastic grind which is then packaged in boxes and dispatched to a partner facility where it is formed into new products.  These in turn will be sold to consumers.
