Coral Products (Mouldings) Ltd have announced the launch of their plastic recycling unit to be installed at its Haydock facility in Merseyside, which will be operational later this month.
The company, which are a supplier of recycling boxes and food waste bins and caddies to local authorities, describes themselves as a “plastic injection and extrusion moulded product manufacturer”. Coral Products (Mouldings) Ltd are part of the Coral Products Plc group which includes, Global One Pak ltd, Interpack Ltd and Tatra Rotalac ltd, all members of the group will be utilising the facility, in the upcycling of their plastic PP and HDPE plastic scrap and waste.
After extensive investigation the company have taken the decision to invest in the plastic recycling unit, which it says will contribute towards financial performance at the end of this financial year (April 2019).
Currently at the Haydock site, the company regrinds plastic to make recycled products, but will now look to take used plastics back from customers to recycle. “From box to box, it’s a great strategy, in up-cycling, and creating new recycled material products, along with innovative design and development, creating a sustainable and efficient process, with minimal impact on the environment is priority for us as a plastics company with a conscience.” States Emma Varney-Long marketing Manager.
As well as taking their own products back, the facility, according to Coral Products (Mouldings) Ltd, is also taking a range of other plastics, providing they can be re-used in their own products.
Discussions have begun with some councils and waste management companies which has seen a good response and delivery of wheelie bins and other plastic products have already taken place at the Haydock based site. The company says this will enable it to achieve its “360 circular economy business strategy.”
