Exporta team up with recycling specialist to offer a free plastic recycling scheme

Exporta, the UK’s Product Handling Experts have teamed up with Recycling Company – ‘Plastic Expert’ based in Northamptonshire to offer free Recycling to their customers of all plastic items such as Plastic Pallets, Plastic Containers, Boxes and Crates.

Plastic waste is a big issue in the world and we at Exporta know that being an Environmentally Friendly supplier is key to trading and it is morally in line with our company values. 98 per cent of all the plastic pallets we sell are made from recycled material. In addition, all our plastic products are 100 per cent recyclable and so we have gone that extra step now in offering a FREE collection and recycling scheme for end of life plastic products to all our customers.

All our current and potential customers can benefit from this scheme. If a company is looking to replace old plastic pallets, boxes or crates for new ones then we are very happy to recycle the old ones. All plastic products sold by us to our customers can be recycled when they come to the end of their useable life – which can be up to 10 years depending on the use case.

We decided to set up this scheme because we were often contacted by our customers or asked when talking to potential customers if we were able to recycle their old products. Because we value and support our customers wherever we can we took time out to set up a workable scheme that would be free to use.

All our customers need to do is to contact Exporta by visiting their website and they will then arrange the collection and recycling.

This scheme is unique as although there are numerous companies that offer to collect wooden pallets (which cannot be fully recycled), there are few, if any at all, that will collect and recycle plastic pallets and other plastic containers.

Dale Paterson the MD of Exporta says: “This is a great initiative that not only helps our customers in a great way but also contributes to reducing plastic waste. A recent survey of our Customers showed a 92 per cent Satisfaction Score which we aim to improve further by introducing great services like this one”

Plastic Expert, like Exporta, is a privately-owned business with a real passion for diverting plastic scrap from landfill and Plastic Expert Sales Director Ryan Knight says: “We are really pleased to be able to support Exporta and their customers with this plastic recycling scheme and look forward to helping them make a difference for many years to come.”

Exporta has the largest range of Product Handling and Storage Equipment in the UK - Plastic Pallets, Pallet Boxes, Wooden Pallet Collars, Euro Containers, Shelving & Racking, Load Securing, Workplace Equipment, Handling Equipment and Workwear.
