Mixed Rigid Plastic
Re-Gen recovers thousands of tonnes of plastic materials through our MDR contracts with local authorities throughout the UK and Ireland. By investing in a combination of mechanical screens and optical sorters, together with manual picking, we achieve exceptional levels of recovery and material quality of mixed rigid plastics.
The larger Hard / Rigid plastics are recovered by hand at several locations throughout the plant and subjected to further manual inspection away from the line to remove non plastic content from the initial pick.
Smaller mixed rigid plastic items are recovered during the automated screening and sorting process before baling with the larger items.
All materials are stored indoors to reduce the moisture content in the final bales.
