Of all the materials on a vehicle, these are the most complicated to recycle. First of all there are many types, either manufactured for safety purposes, structure or just decoration. These would have been designed and created for a specific purpose. So they first need to be separated into types.
What follows in the material recovery centre, is a process that reduces these plastic types into pellets which can then be shipped off to new manufacturing plants to create new products.
We have seen the re-cycle bottle bins at your local supermarket, well the process is pretty much the same for items reclaimed from end of life vehicles.
