Thermocol is useful but not biodegradable

Thermocol is a lightweight, rigid plastic made from polystyrene. It’s used in a variety of packaging applications, from food containers to packing peanuts. While it’s convenient and cheap, thermocol is not biodegradable or recyclable. Fortunately, there are ways to recycle thermocol. 

About Thermocol

Thermocol is a versatile material with many uses. It can be used for insulation, packaging, and even construction. Thermocol recycling is a great way to reduce waste and help the environment. With MyRecycler, you can explore some of the options available for recycling thermocol. From reusing it to breaking it down and using it as fuel, there are a number of ways to give this common material a second life.

Harms of Thermocol Waste 

Thermocol is a non-biodegradable substance made from petroleum. It takes centuries to decompose and breaks down into smaller and smaller pieces, eventually becoming microplastics. These microplastics pollute waterways and are ingested by marine life, causing them to starve or suffocate.

The production of thermocol also releases harmful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. Thermocol waste is a major problem in developing countries, where it is often simply dumped in landfills or burned, releasing toxic chemicals into the air.  

How does MyRecycler assist?

In order to recycle thermocol properly, it is important to first clean it. This can be done by gently washing it with soap and water. Once it is clean, it can be shredded into small pieces. These pieces can then be used as packing material or insulation.

It is important to note that thermocol cannot be recycled indefinitely. Eventually, it will degrade and become unusable. Therefore, it is important to use it wisely and only recycle it when necessary.

With proper facilities and expertise, MyRecycler is your best option for efficiently managing the Thermocol Waste.
