This versatile polymer is most commonly known to make water bottles and soda containers. PET is not only lightweight and durable but also highly recyclable.

HDPE is the strong, reliable material used in everything from pipes to shampoo bottles. Its durability and resistance to moisture make it a top choice for packaging.

3. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC or Vinyl)

PVC is a commonly used plastic in various applications, from cable insulation to vinyl records. PVC's versatility and durability make it an essential part of products across many industries.

4. Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

LDPE is the resilient material behind many everyday items like plastic bags, food packaging, and agricultural film. Its lightweight nature and flexibility makes it perfect for various applications.

Polypropylene is a versatile plastic found in items such as bottle caps, crates, and even automotive parts. Its strength, heat resistance, and lightweight properties make it a valuable material.

6. Polystyrene (PS or Styrofoam)

Polystyrene is a lightweight plastic used in the packaging of electronics, food containers, and even insulation materials. Despite its convenience, disposing of polystyrene safely can be difficult. This is why we offer a specialist recycling service for businesses.

What Is Your Plastic Recycling Repurposed Into?

At Plastic Expert, we use state-of-the-art processing techniques to transform your plastic waste into a form that manufacturers can use to make new products.

Recycled plastic from down piping goes into new down piping, uPVC from window frames is made into new windows and doors, and plastic wrapping waste goes into new pallet wrapping products.
Manufacturers recycle the products that they make back into the UK and European economy. Recycling with Plastic Expert, therefore, helps you create healthy local markets.

cut your carbon footprint

Plastic recycling not only prevents plastic from ending up in landfills or the ocean, but it also helps your company reduce its CO2 impact. Recycled plastic products require less energy, in general, than their non-recycled counterparts.
We are currently seeing and experiencing the effects that plastic is having on our environment from just plastic packaging; such as plastic bottles, carrier bags, plastic bags and plastic films floating in our oceans.
One way in which you can minimise this smaller yet highly impactful post-consumer waste is by understanding resin identification codes and what the recycling symbols mean, so that you are using the correct recycling bins ensuring an efficient recycling collection.

what other waste do we recycle?

As well as bulk loads of plastic materials, we also deal with other waste recycling. This includes cardboard, paper, WEEE items and even hazardous materials. Ensuring we are increasing our recycling rates, we can save environment impact and boost a circular economy.
Most plastics are recyclable, meaning it is essential that the process is complete to save raw materials. Partner with us to achieve zero waste and have more plastic waste enter the recycling system.

For Plastic Recycling Tips



Most plastic is recyclable. Well known recyclable plastics include plastic bottles and containers, plastic carrier bags, plastic film, and some types of plastic packaging. These plastics can be recycled through a mechanical process, at a licenced facilty, to minimise environmental impact.


We recycle most types of plastics at our partner recycling facilities. Plastic which cannot be recycled include materials which are heavily contaminated or even plastic items which combine several types of material.

What is the best way to recycle plastic?

1. Segregate the plastic waste at source using one of our industry-first picking guides.
2. Where possible, compact or bale the plastic waste. Otherwise, the plastic can be palletised for onward transport.
3. The material should be sent to a licenced recycling factory where the waste plastic is turned into pellets, granules or a flake.


To recycle plastic, it should be sorted by polymer type and clear of any contaminants. Once plastic waste is sorted by polymer type, it can then be shredded, granulated or flaked depending on the type of polymer which is being recycled.
