We believe that plastic is a valuable commodity. 

We are known across the UK for being an honest, transparent, and responsible recycler of plastic material. Our strict tracing processes provide us, and our customers, with full transparency and visibility of the trade and recycling process – making us one of the most trusted plastic recycling companies in Europe, and across the globe, connecting worldwide supply and demand. 

Plastic manufacturers in the UK are facing increasing demand from brands, retailers, and consumers when it comes to both the inclusion of recycled content in their products and their efforts towards closed-loop recycling and building a sustainable supply chain.  

Our UK team are based across the UK and our dedicated plastic reprocessing plant is in Whittlesey, Cambridgeshire. Vanden’s global footprint means we can stay one step ahead.  

What plastic recycling services do we offer?

There are three divisions within Vanden.

Plastic recycling – Our plastic recycling service begins with us visiting a customer’s site to assess the quantity and quality of their material. This allows us to see where we can make a positive impact on onsite recovery and storage – as well as the supply chain and waste stream. After material is collected, we always provide certified weighbridge tickets and detailed packing lists for audit and compliance purposes. This material is reprocessed into a commodity and dispatched for manufacturing.

Buying & selling plastic – We have been buying and selling more than 100 grades of plastic since 2005 and have extensive knowledge and experience in international end markets. We work with manufacturers and suppliers who want to both recover and sell recycled plastic. Helping to build sustainable supply chains and a circular economy. 

Our strict processes mean that we have full visibility and traceability on the journey the material takes – leaving the customer safe in the knowledge their material ends up in the right place, and not in the environment or landfill.

Our partnership starts here. Tell us a little about you and your requirements. 

It’s standard procedure for us to only collect material when the minimum volume is 5 metric tonnes or half a truck. If storage of your scrap while you build this volume is a concern, we can arrange the right storage solution for your business, meaning you can claim back valuable space and maintain safer working space.

We work with businesses to help them get true value from plastic scrap. If you are a consumer, looking for plastic recycling options, we recommend you speak with your local council.
