The UK’s leading Plastic Recycling company

Delivering cost and environmental savings to UK businesses

We're passionate about recycling.

And we're serious about wanting to help.

Plastic Expert is the UK’s leading plastic recycling company. Our focus is to divert plastic and packaging waste from landfills and incineration through measurable and ethical recycling processes.

Our portfolio of clients includes manufacturers, food companies, distribution centres, warehouses, retailers and over 250 waste management & recycling centres. We operate our own recycling hub, located in Hampshire, which serves as a bulking site for different types of recyclate.

The services we offer:

Bulk Purchase – we buy various grades of plastic scrap from the waste management and recycling sector. This material is supplied directly to factories in the UK, Europe and Far East. Where possible material is processed within the UK and sold back into the manufacturing sector. Our company buys materials such as LDPE, HDPE, Mixed Rigid Plastic, uPVC window frames, PP Bags, Agricultural Plastic and Cardboard.

Recycling for Business – working with organisations in various sectors, we help identify the waste materials which can be recycled. We purchase smaller loads of baled plastic & cardboard all over the UK and also supply equipment as part of the package. Our recycling experts can provide businesses with a waste audit and cost-benefit analysis.

Farm Plastic Recycling – we help the agricultural sector recycle most types of plastic waste including Silage Wrap, Crop Cover, Poly-tunnel, Trickle Tape, HDPE Canisters and PP Bags.  We can collect this material in bales or loose (minimum quantity applies), in addition we also offer a ‘delivered in’ service at our depot in Hampshire.

Regional Recycling Centres – in 2016 we opened our recycling centre in Gosport Hampshire. We offer two main services from this location which includes:

  • A ‘drop-off’ facility for businesses to dispose of waste materials FREE of charge. Click HERE for more details.
  • A collection service which is significantly greener and more cost effective than standard waste collectors. We only charge an annual compliance fee as opposed to a collection free every time we visit.
