Recovered Plastics

Recovered plastics are gaining increasing importance as a raw material particularly as governments strive to reduce the amount of plastics that are sent to landfill. Demand for recovered plastics is growing both from Europe and SE Asia – in particular China.

Our main markets centre on two product areas:

Plastic Film
Plastic film is a thin-gauge packaging used as a bag or wrap ie plastic shopping bags, stretch wrap etc.  Plastic films compose a broad category of materials that can be relatively simple of complex depending on the demand of a product or package.  Films can be made of different polymers the main ones being:

LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)
LLDPE (Linear Low Density Polyethylene)
HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)

Plastic Bottles
Almost all plastic bottles are made from 1 of 3 types of plastic:

PET  eg bottles containing fizzy drinks, cordials, cooking oil
HDPE eg bottles containing milk/fruit juice, washing up
liquid, fabric conditioner
PVC eg toiletries, still mineral water

These bottles can be clear or coloured and can be recycled to make a variety of end products such as clothing, electrical fittings, fencing, wall/floor coverings and new packaging.

The following specifications serve as a guide only to assist in the buying and selling of this raw material intended for recycling by the plastics industry.
