Investigate available markets

Once you have identified the types and quantities of plastic in the waste stream the next step is to investigate available markets for the plastic, as this may influence how it is handled.

It is important to investigate and clarify markets prior to storing up large quantities of plastic to ensure that your recycling programme will operate successfully.

The larger the quantity of a specific material you can recover, your chances of finding a recycler willing to accept it are much better.

For details of UK-based buyers and recyclers of plastic visit RECOUP's Reprocessor Database .

There are also organisations that specialise in specific materials (such as EPS) and sectors of the industry (such as plastics from electrical/electronic equipment).
