What We Can Recycle For Your Business

Cardboard Recycling

We collect and recycle waste cardboard in bales. These can be mill-sized or smaller, depending on the overall weight. We also collect plastic waste on the same vehicle, to reduce the carbon footprint of collection.

Rigid Plastic

We recycle most types of hard plastic material including HDPE, PP, PVC, ABS & PMMA. Usually these types of plastic need to be separated before collection.


Baled LDPE film of varying grades can be collected with your other plastic. This includes shrink wrap, plastic bags and wrappings, and other soft plastic films. In 2021, the UK produced 2.5 million metric tons of plastic packaging waste.

Laminated films & reels

We recycle most grades of laminated films on reels or in bales. This includes PET, HDPE, LDPE & cross linked polymers.

Plastic Pallets

Broken end of life plastic pallets can be problematic to dispose of. We have a national recycling solution which is cost effective & environmentally sound.

Waste paper

As well as plastic, we recycle a whole range of waste paper material. This includes office papers, mixed paper, redundant magazines and newspapers.

Farm Plastics

Silage wrap, crop cover, polytunnel, HDPE canisters & fertiliser bags are all items we can recycle for the farming sector.

PVC & uPVC Plastic

Plastic Expert recycles most grades of PVC and uPVC plastic. Bales are collected nationwide.


The Plastic Recycling Process

Our licensed waste carriers will collect your plastic waste at a time that suits your business. We will then transport the materials to one of our network of licensed processing facilities.
This process involves sorting, separating, cleaning and shredding the plastics. Once the shredding process has been completed, the waste plastic material is usually granulated or flaked. 


The flakes can be melted down and reused for the manufacturing of new products. These can then be reintroduced back into the market.

The Importance Of Plastic Waste Recycling

Plastic waste recycling conserves fossil fuels used in the production of virgin plastics. Fossil fuels account for over 75% of all greenhouse gas emissions and 90% of carbon dioxide emissions. When we recycle plastic waste, we can reduce these pollutants contributing to global warming and save raw resources. 

What Our Customers Say




We have a network of licenced processing facilities within the UK. The destination depends on the type, quantity and quality of material. We can provide a full audit trail to satisfy our customer requirements.

What is the minimum collection?

Usually we collect a minimum of 4-5 tonnes of waste plastic, cardboard or paper. This does vary slightly depending on the quantity, quality and type of waste and recycling material

Where do you collect from?

We collect from all over the UK using our back-haul network. Each location will differ with cost, however, we can remove multiple waste streams on one truck. Our team will ensure the most cost effective option is offered.

How much do plastic recycling companies cost?

For some waste we can offer a rebate for scrap plastic and cardboard recycling collected. For others there is a collection charge. Our service is usually more cost effective than using a general waste collector. We also supply cardboard and plastic balers for hire which can increase the profitability of your waste.

Do you collect different waste streams on one truck?

Yes, and we highly recommend doing this where possible. For most of our customers, we can remove mixed waste all on the same truck when separated. This may include plastics and packaging.

Can we deliver to you?

Depending on your location, delivering directly into a recycling facility may be a good option. Please let us know the waste materials you have and the location they’re stored. Your account manager can then give some options for delivery.
