In the category of plastics fall many different types of plastic wastes. Some varieties can be recycled and reused. For another part there are no solutions for processing and they are subject to recovery by incineration.
Main types of plastics we buy:
- Bottles of PET (polyethylene terephthalate), sorted by colour or mixed
- HDPE (high density polyethylene) plastic
- LDPE (polyethylene low density) plastic
- PP (polypropylene) big bags
Used big bags and sacks of polypropylene fabric that are no longer usable and could be recycled only. They could be contaminated in some degree with non-sticky substances which can be washed off during the recycling of the plastic.
Plastic wastes are usually being generated from used packaging, vehicle dismantling, dismantling of electrical electronic equipment, cuttings and scrapped batches from various industries, and more. Usually, the mixed and multilayer plastics have no way to be recycled and should be disposed.
Plastic packages that have been in contact with hazardous substances (chemicals, oils, paints, medicines, etc.) are only for disposal and are not recyclable.
Metarex Co. Ltd. offers solutions for wastes from non-recyclable plastics, such as PVC, multi-layer materials, laminated foils and more.
