Who are we?

Plastic Expert is a leading Plastic Recycling Company. 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). We buy a whole range of scrap and recycled plastic material. This includes LDPE, HDPE, PP, uPVC, PET Laminated Reels. Our head office is located in Bristol, we also have a loading site and depot in Hampshire which provides a UK recycling hub for many grades of waste materials.

If your company has waste plastic then speak to our purchasing team to discuss rates, collection options and commercial terms. We also supply plastic recycling equipment such as balers and compaction units. For regular suppliers we can offer long term contracts or agreements, this can be hugely beneficial to waste transfer stations and other larger producers of plastic waste.

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 initiatives for UK businesses. Much of the material we collect in volume is processed within the EU, this offers a more flexible option for loading as usually, we do not use deep sea export containers.

The Plastic Expert team will ensure your plastic recycling collections are compliant, efficient and commercially attractive. We have repeat customers and suppliers who have enjoyed working with our company since 2009.
