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.
