uPVC Window Recycling Near Me

If you are looking for a uPVC Plastic Recycling partner to help you with recycling uPVC windows and doors, then you have come to the right place. At Plastic Expert, we work with businesses and organisations across the UK, helping them maintain their green credentials and become more energy efficient while disposing of unwanted waste uPVC.
If you are in the construction or renovation industry, your company generates a substantial quantity of uPVC waste. uPVC or unplasticized polyvinyl chloride first gained popularity in the 1980s when window and door manufacturers realised that uPVC frames offered material advantages over wood and aluminium. This could be moulded to fit practically any window shape at low cost, and it insulated homes much better than alternative materials, preventing the build-up of condensation on the interior.

We specialise not only in plastic window recycling but also that of other uPVC products, including conservatories.

The uPVC Products That We Recycle

uPVC windows

Construction and double-glazing window installers remove uPVC windows daily. uPVC has particular properties which make it highly desirable for window construction. Plastic Expert is here to help you process your uPVC window frames, removing them from your site and transforming them into new products which serve the local economy.

uPVC doors

uPVC doors are popular for the same reason as windows. uPVC doors help to insulate buildings, reducing heating bills and the risk of mould growth. Like windows, uPVC doors embody a substantial amount of plastic. Again, Plastic Expert is here to help you cut down on your waste, and have your uPVC waste easily recycled.

HDPE Canisters

We can collect triple rinsed & baled HDPE canisters/bottles along with other materials. This offers an eco friendly solution to many types of your plastic waste.

uPVC frames

uPVC frames became desirable because of their renowned durability and insulating properties; they complemented double and triple-glazing perfectly. We recycle all your uPVC frames, providing you with exceptional flexibility.

uPVC conservatories

Do you need to rip out an old conservatory and replace it with a new one? If so, Plastic Expert can help. We recycle the plastic content of uPVC conservatories, reducing the environmental impact of your work.

How We Recycle Your Waste uPVC

Check out the uPVC recycling process below from our national window recycling company.
Step 1: We Collect Your uPVC Material
At Plastic Expert, we like to make things easy for our customers. That’s why we offer a full collection service. Typically, we move your plastic waste material using roll-on/off containers, walking floor trailers and bulkers.
Step 2: Delivering uPVC to our Processing Facility
Trucks deliver the uPVC material to our processing facility where we inspect it and prepare it for processing. We can recycle most uPVC there and then, but the contamination in some waste uPVC may not meet our standards for recycling.
Step 3: Shred the Material
Provided that the uPVC is of sufficient quality, we then load it into our shredder, a particular machine designed to break the plastic up into smaller particles.
Step 4: Remove Non-uPVC Materials
The next step is to remove all non-PVC materials from uPVC windows and doors, including rubber, glass, and steel. We do this by using a variety of methods, including powerful magnets. Where possible, we recycle the metal we extract, but we need to remove it first because we cannot incorporate it into the uPVC recycling process.
uPVC products often contain a range of other metals, not just steel. These metals include zinc, aluminium and brass. We use specialist separation processes to remove these contaminants from the uPVC and store them for further processing on-site. We also use colour-sorting devices to detect rubber components (often used to seal the gap between uPVC frames and the glazing).
Step 5: Turn the uPVC into Granules
The final stage in the process is to turn the purified uPVC into granules. The manufacturing process uses these granules as the basis for creating new uPVC products, completing the cycle.
