The global annual consumption of plastic materials has increased from 5,000,000 tons in the decade of '50 to 100,000,000 tons today. Studies have shown that recycling of plastic bottles are a huge source of savings and the total energy needed to recycle a plastic bottle is negligible compared to the energy consumed in its manufacture. Also poisonous gases into the environment by recycling plastic bottles is minimal compared to those emitted by the outset of construction. The reuse of the plastic is preferable because emitted fewer chemicals in the environment and used fewer resources.

After collection or salvage and primary processing the plastics are driven to plastic recycling installations for plastic recycling.
