Plastic Recycling


The plastics industry has rapidly grown over the last few decades and the need for waste management has increased aggressively. Nearly 350 million tonnes of plastic are produced each year, world-wide. Packaging of produce such as bottles make up for 40 percent of the plastic produced which most of the time ends up in landfills.

Some of the advantages to recycling plastics are conservation of energy, saves petroleum, reduction in CO2 emissions and saves rubbish tip space which in turn help to keep our air and water clear.


Whether it is Polystyrene (PS), Polypropylene (PP), Low-density polyethene (LDPE), Plasticised Polyvinyl chloride or polyvinyl chloride (PVC), High-density polyethene (HDPE), Polyethylene terephthalate (PET), all plastic can be difficult to recycle.


A simple recycling process consists of stages like collecting, sorting, shredding, cleaning and palletising.  The type of process used to recycle plastics depends on the types of plastic and also the resin code it obtains; differentiated by numerical classification 1-7. Keeping in mind, not all plastics are recyclable. For example, PET has the highest recycling value where as some form of Polystyrene and other plastics such as acrylic and plastic bags may not be able to be recycled due to high risk of clogging processing machinery and is therefore not economically or environmentally effective.


Making sure that plastics are in the hands of a professional service ensures the process is done in an efficient and effective manner.

Mr Bradford January 2022

Great company friendly staff

Mr Stewart January 2022

I have working with Recycling Management (RM) for well over a year now and found them to be a excellent company to work with. Although it hasn't happened often, when there has been a mix of communications it has been dealt with urgently and professionally. I have met with the key personnel in RM and visited their site in the Midlands too which was an excellent advert for their business. They also service our northern site in Sheffield and we have had absolutely no issues with any of their vehicles, drivers or service.

First class outfit.

Hi and a happy new year to you all. My apologies for not filling this out sooner but just been so busy. Can't complain at all about your services, you always try and accommodate our needs as its hard to judge when our bins will be full but you always help us out. And as for your representative Mr Lee Perry, well........ what can one say....... he's salt of the earth and always been upfront with me and he's always been there at the end of the phone with help and advice when needed, even when I've contacted him over the weekend or at alton towers. In a nutshell I'd recommend recycling management to anyone, 10 out of 10 all around. Cheers, Tim Aucott
