Plastic Recycling

The UK currently produces 3 million tonnes of plastic waste, the majority of which is destined for landfills. The environmental impact of plastic waste is massive and one of the most immediate and best ways to reduce this impact is to recycle.

Elsa Plastic Recycling is specialist division of Elsa Recycling Group and have been recycling plastic for over a decade. We are perfectly placed to deliver an effective plastic recycling solution to your business as we have built a logistics network and infrastructure that means we can handle most grades of soft and hard plastic, contaminated and uncontaminated and can arrange convenient collection for you.

Why use Plastic Recycling?

We have established ourselves in the Far East by forging links with plastic re-processors so that we can provide a cost effective plastic recycling service. And as an accredited plastic recycler we can supply PERN’s to our customers enabling you to meet your recycling obligations throughout the year.

Our vast experience means that we can guarantee you an excellent collection service and cost effective rates. We are proud to be the plastic recycler of choice for many local authorities helping to organise collection and processing of a wide range of plastics.

Whatever your plastic waste we can handle it, our expertise ranges from small scale mixed plastics to fully baled industrial plastic recycling. We handle everything for you, from collection and sorting to completion, and work with you to ensure that the process is a smooth one.

We can provide recycling bins that can be located in your premises – you don’t need to sort the plastic as we can handle any grade. Or for more industrial producers we can arrange for regular collection of bales as we have a wide range of collection vehicles from vans to articulated Trucks.

Whilst all plastics can be recycled, plastics recycling has traditionally been difficult due to the wide variety of different types of plastics in use – with approximately 50 different classes of plastic each containing a wide variety of types, sorting and processing for recycling is a complex task. Consequently, not all areas have the required facilities to offer recycling of all plastics, over our many years of trading we have made significant investments in state of the art plant, machinery and process.

There are seven main classes of plastics which have been coded on packaging to give guidance to consumers on the different types of recyclable plastics. Elsa Recycling Group are able to separate recyclable plastics from waste packaging and other materials at our Materials Recycling Centre and produce quality high density bales of recycled plastic. However, if you are able to segregate your plastics from your other waste prior to us receiving it, there are further cost savings.

We already handle plastic recycling for a large number of big name clients including local authorities and large scale manufacturers.
