Plastic recycling services for fruit and vegetable growers

Fruit and vegetable growers use a variety of plastic polymers in many forms, including LDPE film, PP/PE crates, PP/PE trays and PET punnets.

When these items are no longer required or in a useable condition, they are often thought of as plastic ‘scrap’ or waste, when they are in fact a high-value commodity and can generate another income for the business.

As the spotlight intensifies on supply chain sustainability, many fruit and veg growers in the UK are facing pressure from their customers to provide transparency and traceability with regards to where their plastic waste ends up.

As a licensed plastic recycling firm, we can offer this, as well as provide reliable collections that remove your plastic scrap, clearing the space for you, leaving you with room to maximise your core business. Once your material is collected, it is taken to our dedicated UK plastic reprocessing plant to be granulated, before re-entering the supply chain, creating a circular solution.
