Green Ant Industries Ltd are experts in the field of plastic recycling and have an extensive network of plastic recycling associates to help us facilitate plastic recycling in the UK. Through these plastic recycling associates we can offer a wide range of plastic recycling services for all plastic types.
Particularly to help consumers with polymer identification for plastic recycling purposes, many plastic products are today marked with a plastics recycling marking system. However this system only covers the 6 major polymer groups which are currently being recycled on a widespread basis. Hundreds of other plastic types are simply marked as “Others”.
Below is a more detailed list of some of the other thermoplastics and thermoplastic rubbers which can be and are recycled by Green Ant.
Green Ant will be happy to help you identify any plastic waste that you may have for disposal / recycling and to provide you with a no obligation quotation for buying or recycling those plastics.
