Shredding line for bulky plastics

Vanden Recycling’s Peterborough facility provides plastic manufacturers with a dedicated recycling solution for difficult, bulky items measuring up to 2m x 1.5m in size, such as bins, drums, dolavs, pipes, sizable lumps and production rejects.

Typically, extruders, injection, roto and blow moulders find such post-industrial waste streams difficult to place because few facilities have shredding lines capable of processing them on a daily basis.

David Wilson, Vanden managing director, said: “We have set up a shredding line specifically for this bulky waste in response to requests from customers. This is high-value production waste that represents a sustainable feedstock and it must be reused at the highest possible level.”

Once processed, Vanden markets the granulated polymers back into the manufacturing sector, both in the UK, Europe and export markets. In some instances, the company may be able to help manufacturers close the loop by granulating the polymer and re-supplying it for use in the same manufacturing process.
