Abstract

Today, Most of the world’s plastic waste still goes to landfill. Plastic waste disposal is one of the cumbersome process which is very less efficient. As plastic containers, bottles are easy to carry they are widely used in many applications in domestic as well as industrial purposes. One of the most prominent application where plastic is not properly disposed is drinking water bottles. As plastic bottles are very widely available in different shapes and sizes that meet the variety of situations economically, people are more leaning towards the plastic bottles other than conventional systems. In most of the functions, parties, events etc, water has been served in bottles of different sizes. These used bottles occupy very large disposal space which usually overflows the dustbins provided at these places and are mostly goes to landfill. This can be prevented by providing crushers at these places. But, today’s waste bottle crushing machines are bulky and are not portable. The paper is about design of a Plastic Bottle Crusher which would help to crush the used Plastic bottles and would thereby help in waste management and disposal. This project aims to design a portable Plastic Bottle crusher that could be installed anywhere and would aid crush of used bottles. This project involves the process of designing the crusher considering forces required for crushing and ergonomic factor that an operator needs. The design of this machine is such that it would require optimum load to crush bottles and will thus not strain the user or operator. After the completion of design process, it could be manufactured and transformed into a Recycle aid able machine. The crusher thus would help in recycling plastic waste. It would also help in reducing the volume of waste generated and will thus help in effective waste management. The crushing of used water bottles will also ensure that the bottles are no used beyond the shelf life of its plastic. Therefore this project will prove to be a useful asset in many ways.
