Sorry up front if you've all heard these questions before...
I'm not a recycler (yet) but the company I work for landfills what I consider to be a large amount of plastic. The plastics include Standard white EPS, Black rigid PS, and mostly beige/cream coloured ABS, PC + ABS, PC + ABS +FR(40). -At least 2000lbs of each annually
At what quantities do recyclers begin to become interested in these plastics.
Where do I find bench mark pricing to know the value of these plastic (i.e. Is it worth my time)
Are there SMALL grinders, compactors, balers etc available to help reduce volume
How clean is clean (what contaminants are worrisome, what are not)
How much separation is required, none, by type, by colour?
A point in the right direction would be much appreciated
