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.

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

Mr Marson Email

In most cases we have been serviced well. Lee is and has always been very quick to respond to any of our issues.

The main issue for ourselves has been failed collections other than that things have gone very well over the last 12 months.

We have used RML across many projects for years, skip collection for my scrap metal. They can be trusted and payment is always prompt. They offer great service and the drivers are extremely helpful.
