We recycle most types of ABS plastic which includes redundant containers, casing from electrical components and other items commonly used in UK manufacturing. ABS, also known as Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, is a polymer that is composed of three different monomers. These components are acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. The overall property of ABS plastic depends on the constituent proportion of the monomers.
How our ABS plastic recycling process works
In order to drive commercial and environmental efficiencies, we usually require a minimum of 4 tonnes of scrap ABS plastic. This material should be free from contaminants such as metal screws, rivets, and non-ABS plastic material. Depending on the weight & volume of materials, we can collect the waste ABS plastic if the material is stacked in pallets, stored in stillages/boxes or compacted using a baler.
Once the scrap ABS plastic has been collected using our network of haulage partners, the material is processed at a fully licensed recycling facility. Initially, the material is inspected for quality and also weighed to ensure accurate environmental reporting. The next stage is where the material is shredded and eventually passed through a granulator, here the material is then used within the injection moulding process.
Please provide our team with some information about the types of material your company is looking to dispose of. We require photos and approximate volumes/weight to assess to the commercial aspect of each collection.
One of our team will be in contact to discuss options and pricing, we can also provide an entire range of compaction/baling equipment if required.
Once we’ve agreed on pricing, a dedicated account manager will deal with the collection of material and necessary paperwork to ensure environmental compliance.
After the collection, your company will receive weight confirmation and corresponding invoices/purchase order. We’ll also provide a recycling report and ongoing support.
