Polystyrene Collection – Plastic Expert Service
In the UK, Polystyrene is one of the most common forms of plastic around, being frequently used in packaging, insulation and even in obscure ways like bean bag and children’s toy stuffing. The construction and logistics industries are by far the biggest users of Polystyrene, but often it is small businesses who eventually have to dispose of it, with landfill seemingly the only option.
Polystyrene doesn’t need to be disposed of though; with our Polystyrene collection service, Polystyrene can be purchased from you and recycled through sustainable end markets. Polystyrene collections are not common, with most local waste authorities advising polystyrene is disposed of with general waste! Compacting Polystyrene makes it even better and more valuable, if you have a large volume, it is advisable to consider baling equipment.
The reasoning behind Polystyrene being disposed of with general waste is that often it has been contaminated by food or drink, making it harder to recycle. Despite being so light, it’s bulky and awkward to collect and transport. For businesses it is quite simple, after Polystyrene compaction occurs via a machine, it should be dry stored ready for a Polystyrene collection. We will pay competitive prices for this material.
