The Importance of Recycling Manufacturer's Waste
The use of plastic in western Europe is increasing by 4% each year and it can take up to 500 years for it to decompose in landfill sites, which is why the recycling of manufacturer's waste is essential to environmental protection. Poineer Polymers Ltd encourage plastic recycling at every opportunity and provide modern, high-tech facilities across the UK.
What Types of Waste Can Be Recycled?
Poineer Polymers Ltd can recycle virtually any thermoplastic waste commonly used in manufacturing processes, including but not limited to:
- Injection moulding waste
- Plastic sheet and profile extrusion waste
- Product finishing waste
- Manufacturing defects
UK-wide Collections Using Local Recycling Associates
We will need access and turning space for the 40-foot, curtain-sided, articulated lorries generally used by our Recycling Associates, although bulk loaders and roll on roll off (RoRo) skips can be employed under certain circumstances. You will preferably have forklift trucks or cranes/grabs available onsite to facilitate loading. We also need different types of plastics to be segregated into different batches, prior to pick-up. Please contact our team if you cannot provide these facilities, so that we can make discuss alternative arrangements. Failure to do so could lead to expensive mistakes.
We are extremely aware of our environmental commitment and optimum loads are of 3 to 5 tonnes, but if you have smaller batches for granulation, we may still be able to facilitate local collection. Please speak to our team for further information.
