    Hello, I am very interested in waste recycle. I have gone as far buying some machines for processing polybag wastes and reused it to make bags again.
    The big challenge I have which forced me to stop production is power. Plastics require high temperature to melt. A typical experience is when the process is interrupted due to power outage, the material in the machine remains there until power comes back may be 10 times in a work shift as is common in Nigeria.
