Who are we?

Plastic Expert is a Plastic Recycling specialist. We buy redundant plastic and cardboard grades from the UK & Europe and place the material directly into end markets for reprocessing. Our factory partners are located within Europe and the Far East which, provides a sustainable route for most types of recycling. We’re a privately owned business with a real passion for diverting plastic scrap from landfill. Many of our suppliers are recycling centres, manufacturers, food companies and materials recycling facilities (MRFs).

About Us

We work with companies producing medium to large amounts of waste packaging material. Direct relationships with end users allows us to implement sustainable recycling initatives for UK businesses. We engage directly with commercial and industrial waste producers as well as waste management companies.
