Precious Plastic in Hanoi, Vietnam – Help needed

Hi everyone,

We are hoping to build the shredder and the compression machine as part of a project to raise awareness of plastic recycling in Hanoi, Vietnam. We are currently based in the United States but will come back to Vietnam this December.

We have contacted a few handymen in Hanoi but they told us that the costs to build the machines are much more expensive than what Dave wrote in his files. So we have a few questions and would really appreciate if you guys can share your experience with us:

1. Where did you get your materials and equipment from?
2. Did you order anything online?
3. How did you reduce the costs to build the machines?

We don’t have a lot of background in mechanics so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hey, I´m in Vietnam right now and would love to contribute to the project, but my background is on marketing, graphic and video, research and social media. I attach my cv in order to check my background, please write me back to if you are interested.

Have a good day!
