 Plastic is a precious material, however, in the UK we only recycle less than 10% of plastic. We want to change that. Precious Plastics endeavors to take on recycling on a local level. We already have 2 shredders and an injection-moulding machine but are looking to add a sheet press to our equipment. This will allow us to recycle more plastic and turn plastic waste into new valuable and versatile products; from sheet materials for construction to prototyping and material research. The project will bring the community together by being playful and educational, whilst learning about plastic and its properties.
