Abstract:

Plastic is one of the most common used materials in the world today. But, they cause serious environmental pollution and exhaustion of landfill space. Among all the plastic products used, the role of plastic bottles in the pollution of our surroundings may it be land, oceans and other water bodies is high. Roughly 200 billion water bottles are produced globally each year. This plastic usually ends up in our landfills to remain for many hundreds of years. This is due to the improper handling of the used plastic bottles. Our project, SCRAP aims at reducing the waste plastic bottles that are dumped recklessly and shredding it into fine granules and later remoulding it into much compact form or to other useful products. An incentive is provided for each plastic bottle deposited. This will encourage active participation in the current generation and makes the users to deposit the bottle inside the device itself and thus reducing the need for additional human resource in collecting the waste plastic bottles. In short SCRAP aims at creating a new revolution in plastic waste management and developing a sense of efficient disposal of waste among public.
