The New Recycled Range

 

 

Our recycled PCR Buckets Bottles and Jerry Cans are

Practical and Sustainable 

 

 

 

Our new recycled containers are a more sustainable way to use plastic packaging. They are made from up to 70% recycled plastic and are fully recyclable too.

 


Recycled Buckets

Sustainable

Our recycled (PCR) buckets are made from 70% recycled plastic, which is much higher than the industry standard. 

Core Range

They are available in a range of popular sizes; 3 litres, 5 litres, 11 litres and 16 litres. Lids are available separately in a range of complimentary colours. The buckets are also fully recyclable after use. 

European Manufacturer

Our buckets are made in Europe and shipped via road and rail, for a lower carbon footprint.

Food Grade Recycled Bottles

Food Grade

Food Grade packaging must meet strict health and safety standards, but because it is difficult to trace where the recycled plastic has come from Food Grade recycled packaging is rare. This is why our Coex bottles are made differently.   

Multilayer Technology

Our bottles are made using three layers. The core is recycled plastic that is sandwiched between inner and outer layers of virgin plastic, this means that the layer that's in contact with the contents is guaranteed to be food grade.

British Manufacturer

Our PCR bottles and Jerry Cans are made in the UK reducing the transport carbon footprint to a minimum.

Sustainable

Coex bottles are a great eco-friendly packaging solution for all goods, including food and beverages.

 


Why use recycled packaging? 

Uses Less Energy for a Lower carbon footprint

Making products from recycled plastic uses up to 75% less energy than using virgin plastic, according to WRAP's UK Annual Plastics Report.

This is because extracting raw materials is energy heavy, using recycled plastic means the energy costs of getting materials out of the ground aren't needed.

This means that even when the collection, recycling and remanufacturing processes are factored in there is a 75% carbon saving.

 

 


The circular economy  

Closing the loop on plastic packaging 

Remanufacturing products using recycled plastic is more sustainable, because it feeds plastic back into the system, helping us move towards a closed-loop circular economy.  

 

Using the earth's resources wisely

Plastics are made from petroleum. Recycling and remanufacturing help us to use the world's resources for as long as possible. It makes sense ecologically and economically for us not to waste the planet's raw materials. 

 

Less Waste

All of our PCR products are recyclable so they can be fed back into the system, reducing landfill waste.

 

 


Recycled (PCR) Plastic FAQs  

What is PCR?

PCR refers to anything made using recycled plastic. The ratio between recycled and virgin plastic will vary according to how the product is made and what it will be used for. Recycled products are typically made from 30%, 50% or 70% recycled polymer.

 

We are they not 100% Recycled?

Some PCR products are 100% recycled, however including some virgin plastic in the mix ensures the packaging has the structural strength necessary to meet industrial packaging standards, whilst also using less raw resources.

Why are most recycled products not food grade?

Strict food safety regulations make it difficult to use recycled polymers because the pellets come from multiple sources. This means it's difficult to trace them back to the source to make sure they are safe for food use. Our PCR Coex bottles have a virgin plastic internal layer to solve this issue.   

Why is recycled plastic grey?

Recycled plastic is naturally grey in colour because it comes from multiple sources.  

What are recycled products made from?

Any plastic can be reground for remanufacture. Our PCR range includes Polypropylene (PP) and HDPE products.
