Recycling waste or things that are made from recycled waste

In everyday life, we often use things that are actually made of garbage, and we don't even know about it. Most of the things that go to the trash can and then to the landfill contain components and materials suitable for recycling and reuse. First of all, this applies to products made of paper, cardboard, wood, plastic, glass and metal. It is no coincidence that containers for these materials are most often installed when organizing separate waste collection.

Tetra Pak Packaging-Ballpoint Pen
The Tetra Pak box consists of paper, polyethylene and aluminum. It is 100% recyclable: the packaging is divided into paper and polyaluminium – a mixture of both plastic film and aluminum foil. Just from polyaluminium, writing pens are produced in the production. Two handles can be made from three Tetra Pak packages.
The eco-pen looks nice and is quite pleasant to the touch.
In addition to pens, writing paper, corrugated paper and cardboard are obtained from the recycled Tetra Pak package. The polyaluminium component of the package includes composite panels, well hatches, tiles, composite boards.

Waste paper-toilet paper
If a person uses recycled toilet paper for a whole year, then in a year he manages to "save" a tree. The process of making toilet paper is simple. Waste paper is crushed, boiled in hot water, disinfected and bleached. Then they are squeezed, dried and pressed. The resulting paper is not inferior in quality to that produced from primary cellulose.

Plastic Jacket
About a third of our trash can is occupied by plastic bottles. This is polyester, aka PET — the most used plastic in the world. This garbage is easily recyclable and can be returned an infinite number of times. The technology of plastic processing saves oil consumption, since plastic is made from it in the primary production. At processing plants, plastic bottles are removed from the lids, labels are soaked and sorted by color. Then the plastic is pressed, crushed, passed through a steam boiler to remove the remaining impurities. As a result, a secondary granule or flex comes off the conveyor-raw materials for new products, for example, when a chemical fiber is obtained from flex. From this fiber, factories produce non-woven materials used in the clothing industry for insulation and fabrics and giving them strength. For example, non-woven fabric is obtained from PET, polyester is also produced from plastic – a fabric that is easy to wash, dries quickly, does not stretch and does not shrink after washing.

Banner-a bag made of banner fabric
The banner fabric consists of a PVC mesh and vinyl polymers. The banner fabric is durable, holds its shape well and does not get wet. All this makes the banner an interesting material for designers. Bags and backpacks are sewn from banner fabric and mesh.

Glass bottle-glass wool
Glass wool is a universal insulation and sound insulation. Glass wool strengthens the external walls of buildings, the floor and the roof. It is made of cullet. To isolate one private house, 3000 pieces of wine bottles need to be processed into glass wool. During processing, the glass is sorted and crushed into glass chips, from which a special fiber is obtained – the basis of glass wool. It is much easier to recycle used glass than to produce it from primary materials. Processing 1 ton of glass waste saves 650 kg of sand, 150 kg of soda ash and 200 kg of limestone needed for the production of primary glass.
