Green Ant Plastic Recycling offer a wide range of plastic recycling services across the UK, including a service for plastic crate recycling (beer crates, milk crates etc)  and for plastic tray recycling (ie. bread trays, , chicken trays, supermarket trays etc.) .

We are actively facilitating plastic recycling of all types of UK thermoplastic  waste including plastic crates and plastic trays (particularly those made from Polypropylene / PP and Polyethylene / PE) to increase the UK plastic recycling rate and help the  country meet its plastic recycling targets.

Crate and Tray  Recycling  Requirements

There are no specific requirements for the recycling of your crates and trays. However, it is appreciated if you can segregate between Polypropylene (PP) crates and trays from Polyethylene (PE) ones.

UK Wide Collections

Using an extensive network of plastic recycling associates across the UK, we are able to offer UK wide collections of your PP and PE plastic crates and trays for recycling, and a comprehensive set of recycling services including the shredding and granulation of the crates and trays and, compounding of the resultant plastic regrind into a product that then can easily be injection moulded into new plastic products (maybe even new crates or trays).

Unfortunately, due to the lightweight nature of plastics we do require a minimum weight of plastic crates and trays to be collected for recycling. This minimum weight depends on your location but is typically 1 tonne (1000 Kgs) for FREE collections. Alternatively we can collect smaller amounts for a contribution towards covering transport costs or we can give you a delivered price so you can drop your plastics at one of our recycling associates.

Larger Collections

If you have significant quantities of plastic crates or trays to be sent for recycling, then we may be able to pay you for the plastics that we collect. If this is the case please call us now on 01507 418111 or send us your details via our Material Enquiry form.

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 aim to minimise the environmental impact and carbon footprint of  transporting and recycling your plastic crates and plastic trays for recycling.

Using plastic recycling facilities  that are as close to the collection point as possible and by optimising the volume  of crates, trays and other plastics collected on each vehicle is not only more environmentally friendly but means we can often collect smaller volumes of plastics than other larger plastic recycling companies are prepared to do.
