Green Ant Plastic Recycling offer a wide range of plastic recycling services across the UK, including a service for plastic oil tank recycling and recycling plastic diesel tanks for end of life plastic oil and disel tanks.

We are actively facilitating  plastic recycling of UK thermoplastic  waste including oil and diesel tanks, and other plastic raw materials, to increase the UK plastic recycling rate and help the  country meet its plastic recycling targets.

Plastic Oil Tank Recycling – Collection Requirements

IMPORTANT NOTE: We cannot collect individual oil tanks. We are only able to collect full articulated lorry loads.

We will collect your unwanted plastic oil & diesel tanks no matter what the size of the tanks

For health & safety reasons we request that the tanks are drained of residual oil and diesel and for logistical reasons we request that some of your tanks have the tops cut off and the other tanks are cut up and put inside the open tanks.

The reason for this is that the tanks do not stack safely on a lorry and doing so enables us to maximise the load weight to ensure a free collection service from most parts of the UK.

UK Wide Collections

Using an extensive network of plastic recycling associates across the UK, we are able to offer UK wide collections of your unwanted oil tanks and diesel tanks and a comprehensive set of recycling services including the shredding and granulation of your oil & diesel tanks and compounding of the resultant plastic regrind.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We offer a free collection service for full articulated lorry loads of oil and diesel tanks. We may be able to collect smaller numbers of oil or diesel tanks but this would be a chargeable service to cover collection costs. We suggest that you contact your local tank replacement service to see if they will take your tank away.

We can collect full loads of oil tanks from tank replacement services so please feel free to give them our details.

Environmental Commitment

Green Ant are committed to the environment and by using our  network of plastic recycling associates rather than one central plastic  recycling facility, we can minimise the environmental impact and carbon footprint for plastic oil tank recycling.

Using plastic granulation services that are as close to the collection point as possible and by optimising the volume  of plastics collected on each vehicle is not only more environmentally friendly but means we can often collect smaller volumes of plastic oil and diesel tanks than other larger plastic recycling companies.
