Rochester collections

Viridor Rochester is one of the most sophisticated plastic recycling plants in the country and utilises the latest technology.

It has the capability to sort waste plastics to a far greater number of components and drive value from every part. The facility won the ‘Lets Recycle’ Award for Excellence for ‘Best Design of a Waste Facility’ and so capacity and reliability are never an issue. The team are fully committed to recycling wherever possible with industry leading efficiency. As a result they are finalists for a National Recycling Award in the ‘Efficiency Initiative of the Year’ category.

"The collaboration with Viridor and the Co-Op as a potential breakthrough in tackling the global black plastic problem.

Bringing together all the main parties for the first time, from us as technology innovator, to the Co-Op as retailer, and Viridor as the recycler is momentous. I’m confident that together we have found a technology solution to end these trays filling up landfills. This is a technology that can work immediately in virtually all recycling facilities across UK, Europe and USA.
