Plastic that has been sorted and recycled.
HW Martin Waste Ltd - Plastic Sorting
We have made major investments into technologies and processes to sort mixed plastics.

Plastic Sorting

A special feature of our Materials Recycling Facility in Leeds is the advanced process for sorting recycled plastics. We use technology to separate polymer types – PET and HDPE.

We make sure that PET bottles are separated out and sent to re-processors to make new plastic bottles – “closed-loop recycling”.

We also process other types of plastics: cleaning it, ensuring it is free of waste material and shredding it into “flakes”. The plastic flake is then ready for manufacturers to use to make new products.
