Environmental Policy


Unlike many other plastic recycling companies, we operate to the highest environmental standards when recycling plastic scrap, ensuring that all exports of recyclable plastics comply with the latest UK, European, and Chinese environmental regulations and standards.

Hawkvale Limited specialises in plastics disposal and inspects and approves all packaging waste prior to shipment to ensure that they comply with the Transfrontier Shipment of Waste Regulations 2007 and the European Regulation EC1013/2006.

Plastics disposal destined for China are pre-approved for import by CCIC London (China Certification and Inspection Company), who individually certificate each shipment. This is a legal requirement by the Chinese Government for the legal import of all waste plastics into China.

The majority of recyclable plastic is exported for recycling in one of our sister company recycling plants, or for recycling in an end user plant. The waste plastic materials we export are used to manufacture a range of items from garden furniture to picture frames. We can provide full audit trails for companies which have corporate environmental policies demanding that materials can be traced through to final use unlike many plastic recycling companies.

We can also provide certificates of destruction for waste plastic materials which are subject to copyright or are commercially sensitive.
