Plastic bag recycler

Plastic bags not only bring convenience to people's lives, but bring disasters to the environment because of their difficult degradation. Recycling is a way to save this disaster. This plastic bag recycling machine will be placed in a community to attract residents to deliver unused plastic bags to the machine for ultraviolet disinfection, and then select products that want to be recycled with plastic bags through electronic screens. This machine aims to convey to users the idea that plastic bags are of great use after being recycled, and enhance their awareness of environmental protection.
