       You'd still need to sort and clean it, since impurities would affect its strength. And recycling plastic is unbelievably baked.

       Plastic waste is already being recycled here as landscaping timbers, so this is baked. Additionally, shredded polythene is mixed with sawdust to make boards for decks and walkways- never rots, never needs painting. Only drawback I see is that it is not as strong (in the load-bearing sense) as traditional lumber.
