Which geological processes will destroy plastic?

The geological record at the end of the Anthropocene will undoubtedly contain large volumes of plastic. However, some geological processes will completely destroy plastic (e.g. magmatic or chemical processes). I assume that sedimentary rocks will contain plastic pellets at the least and that igneous rocks will not. Which geological processes that create metamorphic rock will be able to completely destroy plastic molecules?
