At Viridor we recognise the immense contribution that plastics have made to support our modern world and our needs for the future. Many of the manufacturing, agricultural, medical and information technology advances that underpin our way of life could not exist without plastics.
We also recognise that, if not managed properly, they have the potential to cause great harm to our environment. Our collective understanding of the impact of plastic waste on the planet has increased tremendously in recent years and has prompted global concern and a call to action.
As one of the leading reprocessors of domestic plastics and a founder member of the UK Plastics Pact, Viridor believes in moving towards a circular system where we keep plastic in the economy instead of relying on single use plastics that are then discarded.
By supporting individuals, organisations and businesses to manage their plastics properly and keep them out of the natural environment we can achieve this ambition together.
Our Plastics reprocessing facilities are the most sophisticated of their kind in the country, able to supply recycled plastics feedstock to manufacturers that can be directly substituted for 'virgin' plastics in their processes.

Plastic recycling process
Enabling ever higher levels of recycled plastic to end up in newly manufactured products, we provide recycled plastics to manufacturers and markets in the EU, Europe and Asia and work closely with brand owners and retailers to develop materials that are fit for recycling, particularly in the case of packaging.
If you are a company looking to recycle your plastic contact us to get a quote or enter your postcode to speak to somebody at your local depot.
If you are a company interested in sourcing recycled plastic for your process follow the link for more detailed information about trading polymers.
Recycling plastic to use again and again in the manufacture of new plastic items is a key part of a circular economy. It consumes less energy, generates less carbon and reduces the use of valuable natural resources all while keeping existing plastics from ending up in our natural environment.
Viridor is working now to help make this future a reality.
