In the current day and age, we strive to reduce our carbon footprint and make an impact on saving Mother Earth. At present, the world's annual consumption of plastic materials is nearly 100 million tonnes, compared to that of around 5 million tonnes in the 1950s. Packaging currently represents the largest single sector of plastics use in the UK, accounting for 35% of the UK's plastic consumption. Plastic is the material of choice for nearly half of all packaged goods and consumption is growing about 4% every year in Western Europe, this is the reason why Hawkvale take plastics recycling and plastic scrap trading exceptionally seriously.

There are approximately 50 different types of plastics, with hundreds of different varieties that are all recyclable. The American Society of Plastics developed a standard marking code to aid consumers with identifying and sorting the main types of plastic.

Here at Hawkvale Limited we specialise plastics recycling and trade a broad range of waste plastics including PET recycling, PETG, LDPE, PP, ABS, Nylon, PS, EPS, and PC, specialised engineering plastics and recycled HDPE. Our group takes pride in its ability to provide the most environmentally friendly plastics recycling routes. During 2005, the group invested in three Wood Plastics Composite (WPC) production lines in Qingdao, China, to make plastic lumber products with recycled PE material. We buy extrusion grade HDPE as a raw material for this process, and the group sells plastic lumber deck and pallets.

Our methods and routes for plastics recycling especially PET recycling and polythene recycling will continue to change and be streamlined well into the future.


Recyclable PET materials include but not limited to: PET purge, PET bottle flake, PET bottle fine, PET prime and off-grade pellets, PET floor sweeping pellets, PET fibre waste, PET popcorn and CPM pellets, PET bottle preform scrap etc. The recycled PET materials are used to make staple fibre, non-woven fibre, sheet and film, containers, paint, etc.
