Recycling Technologies launches recycling trial in Hyde Park

Written by: Editorial staff | Published:

Feedstock recycling company Recycling Technologies teamed up with Barclays last weekend to install 25 recycling bins at the Barclays British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park as part of a new recycling trial.

The firm collected and will now recycle almost all of the previously unrecyclable plastic brought on site by the public including crisp packets, pouches and food wrappers.

Bins were on site from 8-11 July with all plastics collected taken to Recycling Technologies’ Swindon plant, ready to be recycled into Plaxx, a feedstock for the petrochemical companies to use in processes to make virgin-quality plastic.

Recycling Technologies is working with stakeholders such as Barclays and Tesco on trials to demonstrate its recycling technology and address consumers’ wishes to do more.

Its goal is to double the UK’s current capacity to recycle plastic waste by 2027.

Elena Parisi, sales and marketing director at Recycling Technologies, said: “Some plastics are vital to the war on carbon, for keeping food fresh and making transport fuel efficient, so our aim is to help ensure that this needed plastic is recycled.

“With the right support from companies such as Barclays, we can help plastic all across the UK get a second, third, fourth chance at life.”
