The Use of plastic is increasing day to day life in present scenario which cause a serious environmental issue, for this purpose we need to make eco-friendly environment by recycling possible waste plastic. To solve this issue already exist highly operated machines but they are too costly.so, the main purpose of our study is to design and fabrication of cost effective plastic shredder machine, the use of power supply and single shaft mechanism which can be useful for Micro, Small & Medium

To implement this concept plastic shredder machine implemented which consists some mechanical & electrical components like Frame, hopper, electric motor, V-belt drive System, shredder setup. This machine is used for cutting the plastic in to small pieces, which are in irregular shaped flakes which can be processed further Recycle recovers the raw material, which helps to make new plastic product. Recycled plastic pieces are fed in to e xtrusion machine where it can form wire like plastic called filament and further used in 3D printing machine.
