We Buy A Huge Range Of Plastic

As mentioned, we will buy a wide range of scrap plastic. This includes common plastic types, such as polypropylene, styrofoam, and polycarbonate. As well as less commonly used plastics. There are a lot of different parts of businesses that involve the use of plastic, whether that be post-industrial or post-consumer. This includes point of sale displays, utility pipe scraps, buckets, crates, and wheelie bins. We can also take manufacturer and production waste, for example, redundant prime material and moulding scrap. If you have had overruns or rejects, for instance, we will be able to take these off your hands. With 79% of plastic waste being sent to landfills or the ocean, we are on hand to help increase recycling rates.
If you have any packaging waste that you need to get rid of, we can also take this. This includes bottle scrap, containers, caps with inserts, and caps and closures. We also supply plastic balers for hire to help your store and reduce waste volumes.
Below is a detailed list of the types of plastic waste that our team collects.

1. Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET or PETE)

This versatile polymer is most commonly known to make water bottles and soda containers. PET is not only lightweight and durable but also highly recyclable.

2. High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)

HDPE is the strong, reliable material used in everything from pipes to shampoo and milk bottles. Its durability and resistance to moisture make it a top choice for packaging.

3. Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC or Vinyl)

PVC is a commonly used form of plastic in various applications, from cable insulation to vinyl records. PVC's versatility and durability make it an essential part of products across many industries.

4. Low-Density Polyethylene (LDPE)

LDPE is the resilient material behind many everyday items like plastic bags, food packaging, and agricultural film. Its lightweight nature and flexibility makes it perfect for various applications.

5. Polypropylene (PP)

Polypropylene is a versatile plastic found in items such as bottle caps, crates, and even automotive parts. Its strength, heat resistance, and lightweight properties make it a valuable material.

6. Polystyrene (PS or Styrofoam)

Polystyrene is a lightweight plastic used in the packaging of electronics, food containers, and even insulation building materials. Despite its convenience, disposing of polystyrene safely can be difficult. This is why we offer a specialist recycling service for businesses.

7. Other

This category encompasses a diverse range of plastics, including PMMA and acrylic, each with its unique properties and applications. These plastics often find their way into products like clear plastic sheets, signage, and optical lenses. While they serve crucial purposes, disposing of them improperly can pose challenges due to their varied chemical compositions.
