Waste Plastic Recycling

At Preston Plastics we specialise in polypropylene recycling and have developed a solid reputation as one of the UK’s foremost reprocessing businesses.

We are extensively experienced in recycling all forms of polypropylene waste, from printed film to non-woven fabric which enables us to offer a broad spectrum of dedicated services.

Leading-edge technology produces a world class service

Our post-use rigid and flexible plastics recycling facility is one of the most technologically advanced in the UK.

We supply specified recycled compounds, agglomerate and granulate that meet our customers’ exacting requirements on fitness for purpose, continuity of supply, cost-effectiveness and environmental impact.

Expert knowledge gives us strength in depth

We reprocess most types of waste and re-use it in a wide variety of products and in many different applications.

As experts in the reprocessing of all types of plastic and most polymer types, we work with:

  • Polypropylene (PP)
  • Low density polyethylene (LDPE)
  • High density polyethylene (HDPE)
  • Medium density polyethylene (MDPE)
  • Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS)
  • High Impact Polystyrene (HIPS)

Continuing to invest in research and development

In a landscape of constantly evolving technology, we are seeing powerful business growth as a result of testing and re-testing previously unrecyclable materials.

To achieve this, we have invested heavily in research and development and are processing more and more contaminated material which has – until now – been commercially or technically unviable as a recycling operation.

The growth of technological capability, combined with knowledge of packaging waste, has allowed us to develop bespoke reprocessing systems that are unique to the industry.

Although we deal principally in polypropylene, we also handle other polymers in all formats including; LDPE, MDPE, HDPE, ABS and HIPS.
