How to dispose of waste takeout food containers

The "China Internet Development Statistics Report” showed that through June this year, the number of China's online takeout users reached 295 million. With the popularity of online ordering, the use of disposable tableware is also increasing rapidly.

Data shows that at least about 20 million plastic bags, more than 6 billion takeout lunch boxes and over 200 million pairs of disposable chopsticks are consumed every day. It is worth noting that, according to an average of 6 centimeters per lunch box, all these daily food containers stacked upon each other would reach the International Space Station 3.5 and back to earth again.

A variety of data has showed that takeout garbage has exacerbated the current situation of garbage siege. In view of the fact that these polystyrene lunch boxes are light, and most of which are not be recycled well, they can be poured into the waste plants or burned or landfill. Whereas, the polystyrene lunch boxes are also difficult to degrade and the landfill will cause great pressure on the environment. After the burning of the polystyrene lunch boxes, a harmful residue of dioxin will be produced, a known carcinogen, which will cause great harm to human health.

When it comes to polystyrene recycling, we are facing alot of problems, such as it is light, has a low recycling rate and is difficult to decompose.

In recent years with the development of science and technology in China, the recycling technology become more and more mature.

Established in 2008, GREENMAX machine who are specialists in recycling, have recycling solutions which include polystyrene recycling, foam container recycling, Styrofoam boxes recycling and plastic recycling that can also be supplied in GRRENMAX.

APOLO series is designed especially for EPS recycling. But also can process materials include EPS, XPS and PSP, like food trays and cups. Furthermore, it can work at a high ratio 50:1 which means if you put 50m³ loose foam into the hopper, the machine will crush the foam into pieces and then compress the pieces into EPS blocks which are 50 times smaller than before; In the same way, MARS series can reduce the volume of the foam up to 90:1. After compaction or melting, it can be reused to make other useful products, such as framing products.

We can not ignore the environmental pollution any more, which is closely related to our life, let’s take action now to protect our home.
