Disposing of Old uPVC Windows – The Process

Our uPVC recycling process is simple, quick and beneficial for both the customer and the environment. Once you have sorted your old uPVC windows and doors, we can come and collect them from you. Alternatively, you can come and drop these off at our HQ if this is more convenient for you. As well as old windows and doors, we are happy to take off-cuts from you, as we can transform these into brand-new products.

Once you dispose of your uPVC windows and doors with us, we can start our process. You won’t have to worry about removing each component, as this is part of our service! The uPVC is put through a mechanical shredder once it reaches our recycling centre. This makes it easier to organise each component.

If the products have metals and magnetic material, then not to worry. We will remove this, as well as the handles and hardware. Using innovative, state-of-the-art machinery, we can sort the individual pieces into colours and will compress them down into smaller pieces.

Following this, the materials are arranged based on their usage, size and colour. The compression stage consists of pelletisation of the pieces. The filtration system works to convert the uPVC into durable pellets, free from contamination.

The pellets are small, round pieces of uPVC which can then be transformed into brand new uPVC windows and doors. Therefore by disposing of old uPVC windows, we can manufacture them into a range of high-performance home improvement products.
