What We Recycle
PVC guttering and downpipe
If you are in the business of installing, manufacturing or removing PVC guttering and downpipe, you generate substantial plastic waste. Plastic Expert is here to help you manage your PVC waste, providing a safe and reliable plastic recycling mechanism, preventing your waste from entering a landfill or the oceans.
PVC pipe generated by industry.
A wide variety of companies create PVC piping for construction purposes. We recycle your excess cuttings and waste plastic at an affordable price.
PVC purge waste from manufacturers.
Manufacturers create PVC waste from a variety of processes, including extrusion. We collect all purge waste from your facility and process it according to high environmental standards.
PVC offcuts from various industries
Many manufacturers have to cut plastic to get it into the desired shape for their products. These offcuts, however, can build up over time and take up valuable storage space. At Plastic Expert, we remove your offcuts from your premises on a schedule, allowing you to plan and adapt your production processes.
Granulated PVC from recycling centers
If you operate a recycling center but do not operate end-to-end recycling and need a partner to take granulated PVC, then we can help. We take granulated PVC, process it into powder, and then supply it to manufacturers to make new plastic products, including piping.
Our Recycling Process
At Plastic Expert, we follow a strict, environmentally-friendly plastic recycling process, designed to minimize the environmental burden of your enterprise.
Step 1: Collect Waste from Your Facility
Instead of organizing your own waste disposal and recycling, we take care of the entire process for you. As a first step, we collect your PVC recycling, UPVC recycling, acrylic recycling, and UPVC windows and door frames from your premises once collected into bales. Compacting PVC waste into bales makes the collection process more straightforward and helps us save you money. (If you haven’t compacted your PVC waste into bales, then you can deposit your plastic waste at one of our regional bulking hubs).
Step 2: Load Your Waste onto a Truck
Next, we load all the bales onto the back of a vehicle. Baling allows us to transport the maximum weight allowed by the truck, providing better value per unit of PVC waste recycled.
Step 3: Separate Materials at our Recycling Facility
Once the PVC arrives at our processing facility, we separate it according to the grade of the plastic.
Step 4: Shred the Plastic
After separation, we shred the plastic and then turn it into granules. (If the material arrives in this form, we skip this step).
Step 5: Powder the Plastic
The final step is to powder the plastic. Powdering allows the plastic to be reprocessed and reconstituted into new products of any shape and size.
Where does your Recycled Plastic End Up?
When you recycle plastic with us, you can be confident that your plastic is not going to landfill or, worse still, the ocean. We recycle all the plastic we receive into products for manufacturing and construction. Our plastic eventually makes its way into new conduits and piping for industry throughout the UK and Europe. By recycling with us, you are doing your bit to support the sustainability of the regional economy.
