Modern times has seen plastic become one of the most popular and useful materials available.Plastic bottle for recycling

We use around 20 times more plastic today than we did 50 years ago.

By re-using and recycling plastic as many times as possible we are able to:

  • Save non-renewable fossil fuels
  • Lower the consumption of energy we use
  • Reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill
  • Lower the number of gases like carbon dioxide into the atmosphere

The All Clear Company will collect your waste Plastics ready for recycling.

Your plastic is then sorted ready to be sent to a specialist recycling merchant in London.

At the specialist recycler they will then shred and wash your plastics readying it to be melted and pelletised.

Plastics are melted down and moulded into a new shape.
Or shredded and melted down into granules.
