Recycled Plastic Bricks

There is plenty of waste plastic floating around any society. Recycling this plastic is one option, but not always as easy as it sounds. For example, take a plastic water bottle. It contains PET plastic in the bottle itself, polyethylene in the cap and its ring, some other plastic in the label and something else in the label’s glue. So is there something else to do with waste plastic? One option is to form it into recycled plastic bricks and then build things with the bricks. See also Plastic Injection Molding.

These bricks look like big hollow LEGO blocks
