During recent years, people are used to the fast pace of life and they like to eat take-out food in order to save time. Take-out food are usually put in the disposable foam containers. The waste foam containers are always thrown away by people. This results in the serious damage of the environment. However, in fact, people should be aware of the importance of protecting the environment.
Recycling styrofoam actions are usually taken by the organizations and the ordinary people will contribute to the environment protection. People use plastic products every day since they provide us with benefits and convenience. Polystyrene products can be used to wrap the package, decorate the cars and pack the electronic appliances. Styrofoam can be used to make disposable coffee cups and food containers. In the most of the occasions, people throw away the used packages and containers, therefore, a lot of EPS waste are produced every day.
People can collect the waste plastic products and throw them into the specific recycling bins. Many cities have machines that can process these waste into renewable useful products. The machines usually include compactors, densifiers and melting machines. Styrofoam is actually something that can be recycled but it has to be compressed because it's about 90 percent air, once it's compressed it can be recycled and made into new products. So, Styrofoam recycling is a good way to deal with environmental pollution.
The technology is being used to compress polystyrene foam, collected waste foam both, then make them into highly dense blocks which can be turned into new products such as picture frames, decorative mouldings and office supplies. The densifier would break down and condense items such foam packaging, cups, and shipping supplies into smaller units shaped like bricks. Once the polystyrene is condensed into bricks it will be shipped off to end markets and recycled into plastic products.
