Collection

Ecoplas offers a regional collection service. We have a fleet of dedicated articulated and rigid HGV’s which are designed to meet supplier’s requirements ranging from 44 tonne to 7.5 tonne to collect post industrial and post consumer waste. 

With a network of sites strategically placed throughout the UK, waste is bulked up and transported to Ecoplas’ state-of-the-art reprocessing plant. Ecoplas is a registered waste carrier and each supplier is provided with the correct legal documentation ensuring they are fully compliant with the Environmental Protection (Duty of Care) Regulation 1991. Our systems provide evidence of full traceability of materials from collection at source through to the production process to delivery to the customer, so that suppliers can be sure that all of their waste is recycled to it's full potential.

ECOPLAS – 26 YEARS OF RECYCLING INNOVATION

We receive virgin scrap profiles from system suppliers and window fabricators who provide two principle raw materials, bar lengths and off-cuts. Cages and containers can be supplied free of charge and exchanged on a regular basis to reflect your volume requirements. 

As each systems company has its own unique colour and formulation, Ecoplas identifies and segregates each material batch at collection and operates an identification system to ensure traceability during storage and processing.

  • Incoming materials are inspected and sorted to remove sources of contamination.
  • Material is graded before passing through the recycling process.
  • Material is size reduced by granulation to 6mm or 8mm chip, fine particles are removed.
  • Material passes through metal and rubber separation processes, colour separation and finally stringent QC testing. 

The final product can be supplied as rechip or further processed into micronised powder or compounded into pellets.

PC Frames

Environmentally beneficial and sustainable

Preventing post consumer windows and doors going to landfill is not only environmentally beneficial but has a direct impact on project delivery and cost effectiveness. Under current government commitments landfill tax is set to continue to rise. By adopting and implementing sustainable practices companies can manage resources, build their environmental reputation and ultimately reduce costs.

ECOPLAS – 26 YEARS OF RECYCLING INNOVATION

Working in commercial, refurbishment sectors and social housing, Ecoplas has the capability to collect nationwide and reprocess old window frames that may otherwise go to landfill, converting them to reusable material which can be used as a raw material in the manufacture of new building products.

We operate a national collection service, with weekly contact from our procurement team enabling us to plan collections and service businesses on a regular basis. If you are a waste management or skip company then why not deliver in to us. Provided the loads meet our material conformance criteria we offer a swift tip at a competitive market price. 

  • Window/door frames must be minus the door panels, the glass, whole or dismantled.
  • Frames must be as clean as possible.
  • The hardware can be left on (hinges, handles and reinforcements).
