A Leader in
As one of the largest polythene film re-processors in Europe
Berry bpi is a pioneer of plastic recycling in Europe. It is our mission to increase the amount of waste plastic recycled in the Europe as part of our commitment to the environment, and the core sustainability strategy underpinning our business.
Berry bpi is part of the wider Berry global group - a global manufacturer of plastic consumer packaging, nonwoven speciality materials and engineered materials.
A leading reprocessor, continually investing
We have the capacity to recycle up to 100,00 tonnes of waste polythene from a wide range of sources including packaging, commercial, industrial, retail and agricultural plastics.
Over the last 30 years we have heavily invested in polythene film washing and recycling. More recent additions include our state-of-the-art wash recycling plant in Derbyshire - where we recycle polythene from commercial, industrial & retail sources such as pallet hoods and stretch wrap with paper labels that would otherwise go into landfill or be burnt.
Reduce Waste to Landfill with Innovative Circular Solutions
To give a glimpse into our closed loop recycling process, the used agricultural films we collect are often heavily contaminated with soil and general debris, which is where our wash recycling plant plays a part. The waste plastic is washed, cleaned, and then extruded or ‘re-born’ as LDPE/LLDPE pellets. This material provides the perfect feedstock for our range of recycled products, given its linear polymer make-up which provides higher tensile strength and impact resistance.
The environmental benefits of recycling plastic in Europe are clear - it SAVES energy, SAVES water, SAVES raw material and SAVES carbon emissions. Plus, the waste material recovered may otherwise be land filled, burnt (which is illegal), or shipped thousands of miles to the Far East to a reprocessor only to be imported back to the UK afterwards - clocking up huge product miles and a massive carbon footprint.
Closed loop recycling and you
Closed loop recycling schemes are a high profile way for you to demonstrate your commitment to the environment. Berry bpi can help implement this kind of closed loop scheme thanks to our recycling expertise and infrastructure.
We can collect your waste plastic and supply recycled, second life products back to you for either your own use or for use by your customers.
