Plastic recycling

We recycle all different grades of plastic, palletised, shredded, baled or granulated – single or mixed grade polymers. All of the waste plastic we collect is recycled into a new plastic product of the same polymer type.

We handle soft and hard plastics, baled, palletised, loose, shredded or granulated.

Soft plastics

Soft plastics are typically a plastic film material such as pallet or stretch wrap, we grade the material and provide the highest rebates possible for these to be recycled. We can accept the following grades:

  • LDPE Film on Reels
  • PP Films on Reels
  • 98-2 LDPE
  • 95-5 LDPE
  • 90-10 LDPE
  • 80-20 LDPE
  • Jazz LDPE
  • PP Film unprinted
  • PP Film Printed

Once we have established the grade and volumes produced, we can provide feedback if the material could be further segregated or waste handling improved to increase the rebates achieved. We encourage education to our waste producers to enable the maximum rebates possible to provided and to encourage our waste producers to recycle more.

Hard Plastics

Hard plastics we handle include:

  • Waste plastic pallets
  • PP rigids
  • PP regrinds
