15 Years of
Rural Recycling

To offer the most sustainable solutions for end-of-life packaging and left-over product, we work with the Ministry for the Environment, councils, as well as local and international networks and recycling schemes.

Our recycling network includes over 100 fixed sites nationwide, and on-farm collections for large items or large quantities of containers. The collected plastic is made into re-usable products such as underground cable cover and building materials.
