LDPE Recycling | Plastic Film

Call us TODAY to discuss LDPE Recycling prices

LDPE (Low-density polyethylene)  is commonly used to manufacture pallet wrap, construction film, packaging film and containers throughout the world. We purchase baled LDPE film in full or part consignments. For suppliers with storage constraints, we offer a ‘mixed bale’ collection service which means we can collect other waste plastic packaging on the same vehicle.


Baled LDPE plastic material ready to be collected and recycled.

The grades of LDPE Plastic we purchase are most commonly:

  • 98/2 LDPE Film (typically from distribution centres and retailers)
  • 95/5 LDPE film (5% contamination which includes paper and labels)
  • 90/10 LDPE Film
  • 80/20 LDPE Film
  • LDPE Jazz (mixed colour)
  • Wash Grade LDPE Film

Thinking of getting started?

If you’re a commercial business, manufacturers, skip company, waste transfer station or recycling centre and do not bale your plastic waste, it’s important to be armed with all the facts. We can provide you with a ‘Plastic Recycling – Getting Started’ guide. In addition to the plastic recycling guide we can also recommend the right plastic baler. Our network of baler suppliers have a range of brand new and refurbished machines with various different finance options.


Unlike many traders or brokers, we buy baled LDPE film all year round. We supply the factories directly with large volumes of material from the UK, this means you’ll always be able to have your material collected in full consignments. Full loads of waste plastic bales are collected and sent directly for use at a LDPE Recycling factory. Wash grade LDPE plastic (typically from skip and waste management companies) is sent to our wash plant in mainland Europe for treatment. Plastic Expert specialises in wash grade LDPE film with mud/dirt contamination and service over 150 waste transfer stations across the UK.
