The Recyclability of UPVC

The claim that UPVC is not recyclable is untrue. UPVC, like all other thermoplastic materials, can be recycled using professional procedures.

It has long been a common practice to recover and recycle factory waste and/or off-cuts. Our company wants to continue these efforts by giving businesses a chance to make good use of their waste. Thanet Metal Recycling picks up your UPVC waste and gets rid of it for you without sending it off to landfills. Upon collection, UPVC materials are mixed with virgin polymer to produce new long-life products including window profiles.

Economic and Environmental Benefits of Recycling

The primary aim of recycling is to elicit a net environmental benefit through reducing the use of primary resources as well as diverting resources from landfill. When your company invests in proper waste disposal, you are likely to attract greater numbers of customers with a green conscience.

Thanet Metal Recycling uses a purpose-built shredder for processing UPVC window frames and extracting the metal and waste products from the UPVC. This will leave the clean UPVC which can be reused in other manufacturing processes.
