Virgin PVC-U

Virgin PVC-UWe want your PVC-U. We pay to collect your waste PVC-U and plastic recycling. We want plastic offcuts and short ends from your pvc manufacturing process.

How does it work?

We supply you with as many bins as required and leave them with you.

You put your offcuts and unusable short lengths of virgin PVC-U from your manufacturing process into the bin and when it’s full tell us to collect.

Alternatively we can collect the bins on a regular basis, whichever is best for you.

The recycling containers are brought back to our pvc recycling plant in Littleborough ready for processing.

They are weighed; all material other than PVC-U is removed and stored for recycling.

You receive payment 7 to 14 days later.

We supply a complete audit trail, so that you and we know where the PVC-U material has been sourced and where it has gone.

Recycling facts

The virgin PVC-U is granulated into small pieces; specialist equipment sorts the white from the multi-coloured (jazz) chippings. Film, metal, aggregate, silicon, rubber beading and cardboard is removed for recycling. Nothing is lost and nothing goes to landfill.

The chippings are put through a cleaning and sorting procedure and the final process produces a reusable PVC-U that can be used to manufacture new PVC-U products. The end result is a high quality product with little contamination.
