Which Plastics Can We Recycle?
Many plastic recyclers only deal with a small range of different plastic types . So which plastics can we recycle? As a facilitator of plastic recycling Storm Recycling do not have the same limitations.
We work with a number of recycling partners across the UK and Europe and so can recycle most thermoplastics and thermoplastic rubbers if there is a sufficient quantity.
Some plastic types are more attractive to us commercially for plastic recycling because they are more widely recycled but we will endeavour to find a home for any plastics that you have available for sale or disposal if the quantities are right.
Recycling Your Plastics – Individuals/Households?
Sorry but we do not take plastics from individuals or households!
Storm Recycling do recycle plastics generated in the home but only after they have been processed by a Materials Recovery Facility. It is not feasible for us to take materials from individual households because of the small quantities involved.
We only facilitate recycling. We do not have any physical equipment so please DO NOT send us your household plastics.
Recycling Your Plastics – Minimum Quantities?
Unfortunately we cannot take very small quantities of plastic for recycling!
Minimums vary according to product type but realistically the minimum collection quantity for most plastics is around 3 tonnes (3,000 Kgs).
How Do I Pack My Plastics for Recycling?
Packaging will depend on the form of the waste and should be appropriate for that form. Essentially the plastics should be packed and secured in such a manner as to reach their destination in good condition.
- For Scrap – metal cages (stillages), industrial skips, boxes, FIBC’s etc.
- For Regrind / Pellet – 25 kgs bags/sacks, FIBC’s, Octoboxes
It is our usual and our preferred option for plastics that we purchase to be packed onto pallets for ease of loading / unloading using a fork lift truck. However if supplying baled materials this may not be necessary. Please check our requirements before shipment.
