Plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays
Plastics are separated from your other recyclables at a facility in London and sorted into the different plastic types, including plastic bottles and mixed plastics, such as pots and trays.
Plastic bottles are then sent onto facilities in the UK for remanufacturing - they are washed and chipped to create plastic pellets which can be remade into new plastic bottles.
The other mixed plastics are sent to specialised sorting facilities within the UK for further separation by polymer type, prior to being sent on for reprocessing into new products.
