HIPS Recycling For UK Businesses

Our company offers a sustainable solution for disposing of high impact polystyrene sheets (HIPS) plastic waste. HIPS is a type of thermoplastic sheet that has a wide range of applications, including vacuum forming, electronics, soft drink cups and construction materials, which is why it is commonly used in the manufacturing of various products.
However, when not properly disposed of, HIPS plastic can contribute to environmental pollution. This is why our HIPS plastic recycling service is so important. When this material is thrown away with other general waste, the material cannot be recycled. It can also only be recycled with specific businesses such as ourselves, who deal with these types of plastics at licensed centres.

How Are High Impact Polystyrene Sheets Produced?

This type of plastic material is a rubber modified version of general purpose polystyrene. Adding this modification makes it more durable, which is why it is used for products in need of a higher impact resistance. The impact strength of the polymer results in a strong product ideal for packaging applications.

The Benefits Of HIPS Recycling

One of the main benefits of recycling high impact polystyrene sheets is that it can be recycled into a wide range of new products. The recycled HIPS can be used in the production of new HIPS sheets, which can be repurposed and introduced back into the market. Recycled high impact polystyrene is just as strong and consistent as new HIPS, which means it can be used in the same way as virgin HIPS.

We Specialise In HIPS Plastic Recycling

Plastic Expert specialises in the recycling of high impact polystyrene (HIPS). Our HIPS recycling process starts with the collection and processing of waste materials.
Once transported to our licensed recycling facility, we carefully sort and clean the plastic waste to remove any contaminants, such as dirt or labels. Then, the team converts the HIPS waste into a new HIPS sheet that can be used in a wide range of applications.

Your HIPS Can Be Recycled Into New Products With Our Help

Through recycling, we are helping to reduce the amount of plastic waste that ends up in waste-to-energy plants. Polystyrene foam is also littered more than any other waste product—despite it being only 1% of all waste, it makes up 10 to 40% of litter found in streams. This is why it is so important to dispose of your plastic waste safely, and sustainably. 
Get in touch today to book your HIPS collection. We can also collect other recyclable plastics such as HDPE, LDPE, PVC, and PET plastic waste. Our team also collects other materials such as paper and cardboard to repurpose into new products.
