How To Recycle PVC

PVC windows and doors can be recycled. This is a fantastic way to help save the environment. PVC profiles can be recycled up to ten times, providing a total of around a 350-year lifespan.

With our advanced uPVC recycling scheme, manufacturers can offer eco-friendly PVC systems to their customers that boast the same amazing benefits as brand-new installations. By investing in sustainable products made from recycled materials, all our customers can reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill and help to keep our planet safe.

We are specialists across in uPVC window recycling for the UK and across Europe. We work with both waste companies and PVC manufacturers to become more sustainable and provide homeowners and tradespeople with eco-friendly PVC windows, doors and conservatories. Our sister company, VEKA Compounds, offer contamination-free pellets to our list of approved extruders.

The PVC Recycling Process

The PVC recycling process starts by collecting the product from the on site location. We arrive in low emission trucks and drive directly, avoiding spending excessive time on the road. We are based in Northampton because it is a location with fantastic transport links across the UK.

Once the product has reached our technologically advanced sorting facility, they are broken down by size to make them more controllable. We then filter out any non-PVC material to ensure that we are left with a clean and pure product.

We then work to sort by size and extract any hardware and metals. Our sister company, VEKA Compounds, uses an innovative melt-filtration system to turn this PVC into contamination-free pellets.

We have designed an innovative recycling process that covers every basis to make it easier for both our team and our customers. We offer a free collection service and bags for you so that when we pick it up, it is as seamless and hassle free as possible.

If you are worried you will have to remove the hardware yourself, don’t worry about that. Our fantastic recycling machinery does all the hard work for you. All you need to do is be there when we collect the unwanted products. It is as simple as that!

Why Recycle PVC?

Sustainable

For years we have all known how our actions have a negative effect on the environment and we should change many of our behaviours. We all know we need to reduce, reuse, and recycle. This goes with PVC products as well.

Once PVC installations become outdated, tired and generally unusable, they often get sent to landfill, which can be overfilled and generally damaging to our planet. By recycling PVC, we can limit the amount of waste that ends up going to landfill and reduce the requirement for new products to be constantly be created.

Cost-Effective

Many of us don’t consider what happens when we dispose of unwanted goods, whether it’s thrown in a bin or sent to a tip. It is expensive to keep waste in landfill, which harms the British economy. By reducing the amount of waste sent in landfill, we can help to improve both our economy and help save money.

For manufacturers, by showing that you are committed to using more recycled products, you can offer your customers environmentally friendly products that are the best financial option for them. There is a huge range of reasons why recycling PVC is beneficial and should be considered by everyone.

Legal Requirements

In recent times, there has been more legislation that encourages companies and property owners to become more environmentally friendly. By choosing us to recycle your old PVC windows and doors, you contribute to us meeting these legal standards. We believe that being eco friendly should be a collaborative effort and that we should all be finding ways to be better to improve our sustainability.
