Call us TODAY to discuss recycling PP sacks
PP sacks come in all shapes and sizes and from various sectors. Many of our suppliers are skip companies, recycling centres, the agricultural sector and UK factories. This material must be baled for transportation purposes, collection can be made as a full consignment load or as part of a mixed plastic load.
The return on recycling PP sacks comes from landfill cost avoidance and the rebates we pay to suppliers. Rebate values do vary depending on the type and grade plus other contributing factors such as colour, cleanliness and contamination levels.
Grading for recycling PP sacks:
A Grade PP sacks – from manufacturing/factory production. Clean, white or single colour PP sacks with no contamination. This product commands the highest rebate value.
B Grade PP sacks – from cleaner recycling centres, almost always sorted and stored inside. The PP sacks should have little contamination and single colour streams can command a higher price.
C Grade PP sacks – usually from dirtier environments they would be considered a wash grade. Most of our supply comes from skip companies and waste transfer stations. These bales are usually mixed colours, command a much lower price. This materials stays in the EU for washing due to the ‘green fence’ laws in China.
Thinking of getting started?
If you’re a UK business, farm, 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 PP sacks 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. Collection is made using a curtain sider vehicle and transport can be arranged on the most suitable day.
