Reprocessing & End Products

The plastic recycling process requires several steps to turn discarded plastic into new products. In this section you will find more information about plastics identification tests. There are a number of simple tests that you can carry out to get an idea of the plastic used for the manufacture of any given product. 

If you are looking for a Reprocessor or Compounder in your area in the UK click below to find them in RECOUP's databases. There you can find materials accepted, products produced and more. 

There are a wide range of products now produced which contain recycled plastics. These products have varying degrees of recycled packaging material present depending on the properties of the recovered material, the conversion processes used and the application and specification of the product being manufactured. RECOUP is keen to raise the awareness of the products made from recycled plastics and we give the opportunity to companies to promote their products on our End Products database. 

Find a Reprocessor

See a database here that will help you to find the reprocessors in your area.

End Products

Recycled plastic is used to make many different types of products. Here you will find Recoup's searchable database of products containing recycled plastic content.

Understanding the Market

Global demand significantly outweighs supply. Collected bottles can either be sold once sorted by polymer type (which commands the highest value) or can simply be marketed as a mix of all types of bottle.

Identifying Plastics

In the UK there is no legal requirement for manufacturers to label the material type. There however are a number of simple tests that you can carry out to get an idea of the plastic used for the manufacture of any given product.
