Cans and plastic bottles are collected together and baled at our yard before being taken to Kent to be recycled. Cans are separated and melted down for use in cars and aircraft, or made into new tins. PET plastic items are either recycled into bottles or spun into fibres to make clothes and carpets; HDPE plastic is made back into containers such as milk bottles. Cans and plastics are usually collected in orange plastic sacks which fit into our standard slim bin.
For our internal collection scheme we can collect your cans and plastics in orange polythene sacks along with your other waste and recycling.
For workplaces that produce higher volumes of waste cans and plastics, we can provide wheeled bins for storage in between collections.
