Recycling damaged and rejected plastic milk crates in the UK

Toll processing

We were contacted by a milk crate manufacturer who needed a way of disposing of and recycling damaged and rejected crates and was reluctant to send them to landfill, for both environmental and financial reasons.

After discussing the various options we arranged for the customer to send the unusable crates to our Buckingham plant for recycling for an agreed fee (toll processing). We were able to process the crates turning them into a granulate that could be used for new production without the need for compounding.

By using our Toll Processing service the company was able to reduce its costs by avoiding landfill charges and demonstrate its corporate responsibility to the environment.
