Ecogen Recycling provide a wide range of plastic recycling and plastic disposal services to businesses throughout Surrey and the surrounding areas, including bulk plastic recycling in Surrey and bulk plastic waste disposal in Surrey.
Plastic is one of the most commonly used materials in the world due to its versatility, and since the 1950s, it is estimated that 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic have been produced. However, our reliance on various forms of disposable plastics and plastic packaging over the last 100 years has had a serious impact on the environment, with much going to landfill or into our seas and oceans, and very little being recycled.
Plastic Recycling Facts
A single ton of recycled plastic saves 23 cubic metres of space in a landfill, and 3,114 litres of oil and 20,786 megajoules of electricity which would have been used in the manufacture of new plastic packaging.
Only 45% of plastic bottles in the UK are recycled, but plastic bottles can be recycled and used to make:
- duvet filling;
- home insulation materials;
- compost bins;
- new bottles that are more sustainable.
Plastic recycling benefits the environment and helps to reduce the amount of non-decomposable waste in our oceans as well as reducing the amount of plastic that ends up in UK landfills. However, currently only 31% of plastic is recycled in the UK.
At Ecogen, we collect bulk plastic waste from businesses throughout Surrey, and 100% of the plastic we handle is recycled. When plastic is collected for recycling, it is separated into the different types of plastics, shredded and melted into polymer pellets which are then used in new products.
