Overview

Overview

WRAP provided Biffa Polymers (formally Greenstar WES) with a £1.187 million capital grant to help build the new rigid mixed plastics recycling facility in Redcar, Middlesbrough.

This recycling facility, completed in March 2011, demonstrates the environmental and commercial benefits of a fully functioning rigid PP pots, tubs and trays recycling plant for the UK recycling industry.

With a wide range of applications and global end markets, the added value processing of pots, tubs and trays will deliver economic benefits in the UK, divert more waste from landfill, and reduce carbon emissions.
