Devon Contract Waste is one of the biggest processors of waste plastic in the South West and has contacts all over the world that recycle even the most obscure of plastics.
We go to these lengths because of our passion to recycle rather than landfill and we are already diverting in excess of 60 tonnes of plastic a week from landfill in Devon.
UK-based reprocessing is our preferred option as it reduces the distance the plastics have to travel and also creates jobs. Following some large investments by private companies, there are now more UK facilities able to recycle plastics and we have built excellent relationships with the key players. Around 25% of our plastics are now reprocessed in the UK and we aim to grow this figure, however our preferred choice will always be recycling over landfill.
