Our on-site plastic recycling process recovers waste or scrap plastic and turns it into a variety of materials that can be used again in other products. This helps us to conserve resources and diverts plastic from landfills, minimising the environmental impact.

All the plastic waste that is either collected by NWR or received at our materials recycling facility is separated into seven different categories of plastic:

  • LDPE: Natural film / clear film / jazz film / mixed colours / black film / farm plastics
  • PVC & UPVC: Door & window frames / spouts and guttering
  • PP: Dumpy bags & bulk feed & fertiliser bags
  • PET: Drinks bottles and non-food packaging
  • HDPE: Milk jugs / detergent & shampoo bottles / yoghurt pots
  • MIXED HARD PLASTICS: Toys & garden furniture

A mechanical selector grab is used to sort out the larger bulky items such as garden furniture, window frames and sheets of plastic. The remainder is manually taken out on the picking station, baled and supplied for recycling.
