Meeting the plastics recycling challenge
Plastics are made from the Earth’s precious resources, offering amazing properties which support our modern living and the needs of the future. However, the environmental impact of mismanaged waste plastic is now a global concern and as our understanding of the issue increases, the impact that plastic waste has on the environment could be greater than previously thought.
Viridor believes that we need to move away from a linear plastics economy, where we take, make and dispose of plastic, towards a circular system where we keep plastic in the economy and out of the natural environment.
Recycling plastic to use again and again in the manufacture of new plastic items consumes less energy, generates less carbon and reduces the use of valuable natural resources.
As one of the leading reprocessors of domestic plastics in the UK and a founding signatory to The UK Plastics Pact, our Plastics Recycling facilities are the most sophisticated of their kind in the country.
Committed to supporting a circular economy for plastics and enabling higher levels of recycled plastic to end up in newly manufactured products, we provide recycled plastics to manufacturers and markets in the EU, Europe and Asia and work closely with brand owners and retailers to develop materials that are fit for recycling, particularly in the case of packaging.

As well as providing recycled plastics to the recycling manufacturers and markets in the EU, Europe and Asia we work closely with brand owners and retailers to develop materials that are fit for recycling, especially in the case of packaging. For more information on VRM trading click here.
