By separating different plastics e.g. strapping, plastic film and hard plastics from each other, the materials are easier to recycle as their is less sorting. Separating plastics (polymers) makes the plastics more valuable

We provide plastic recycling services in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Plastic Film and bottles are collected in our lorries in baled and loose  form. The plastic is unloaded at our Materials Recovery Facility.  It is then sorted and separated into ten different grades of plastic depending on the polymer and the quality of the material. It is then baled. Afterwards plastic is then

  • Shredded
  • Washed
  • Melted
  • Pelletised

Plastic products made from recycled plastic include bin liners and carrier bags and then flower pots.

We have recently invested a state of the art mixed plastics recycling facility to enable Envirogreen  to recycle and reprocess plastics that were previously destined for landfill. We separate the various polymers using advanced plastics separation equipment.

Our sophiscated polymer recycling, reprocessing and recovery process enables produce a high quality plastic pellet that is used to manufacture new plastic items.

Our polymer recovery and recycling processes is helping both the Irish and Northern Ireland governments meet the stringent EU recycling and recovery targets.
