There’s more you need to know about plastic recycling, done right
We collect and reprocess recyclable plastic scrap, offcuts and skeletal waste at our UK facility, before supplying it to manufacturers around the world.
This means we keep tight control of quality at every stage of production, while helping you to secure the quality of your scrap plastic. This secures rebates and creates sustainable recycling solutions, creating quality feedstock for supply chains.
Our processes include regular material inspection at suppliers’ premises, advice on segregating, handling and storing material and consistently quality-testing reprocessed material.
Our knowledge of the plastic recycling industry, our global expertise and great people, puts us in the perfect position to offer our recycling knowledge directly to manufacturers like you.
