Manufacturing Sectors We Work With
Let’s Recycle It was established to service the increasing needs of the Irish manufacturing sector, which has been experiencing solid growth year on year.
Ireland and the United Kingdom are major producers of many different manufactured goods
These are all plastic-heavy industries and we play a vital role in helping companies to achieve corporate zero waste targets. We have seen in real time the uptake of Irish and British manufactured products as a direct result of the essential services we provide.
We understand that if we are to help in protecting the environment then promoting the need for corporate responsibility when it comes to management of waste materials is beyond important.
We will only work with reputable, trustworthy companies, with hauliers who are fully licensed waste carriers, and with fully accredited end users.
We work with companies across Ireland, the UK and mainland Europe in a number of different capacities to help them achieve their goals.
We work tirelessly to assist those we work with in maximising the profit they can get for their plastic scrap, whilst always ensuring that we find the most well-suited end user for their material. We do all this and more as part of our fully traceable services, and we would love the opportunity to do it for you as well.

Materials we accept
PET - PET is the abbreviation for Polyethylene Terephthalate, which is formed when ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid are combined. It is a clear plastic that is both strong and lightweight enough to be popularly used for food and beverage packaging, with close to all single-use plastic drinks bottles being made from PET. It is also a popular choice for a great many other products, such as bottles for hygiene products and even tennis ball cannisters.
HDPE - HDPE is the abbreviation for High-Density Polyethylene, which is made from the monomer ethylene. It is a thermoplastic, which means that it can become softer when heated in order to be moulded and will then harden when cooled without any alteration to the material’s properties. The material is incredibly versatile as it is lightweight, strong, malleable, impact resistant, weather resistant and long lasting. It is used across a wide variety of products over a range of different industries. For example, it is used for milk jugs, fuel tanks, piping, children’s toys, and even bread bags and cereal box liners.
PVC - PVC is the abbreviation Polyvinyl Chloride. It is made by the combination of chlorine and ethylene to form the monomer vinyl chloride, which is then sequenced to make the polymer Polyvinyl Chloride. PVC is a very strong and tough material that can be easily shaped, which gives it many different uses in terms of what it can be manufactured into. PVC can also be made soft and flexible when mixed with certain additives. This means that whereas PVC can be used for construction, automotive and medical items, it can also be used for items such as polyvinyl flooring, clothing and upholstery.
LDPE - LDPE is the abbreviation of Low-Density Polyethylene, which is made from the monomer ethylene. LDPE is a thermoplastic, which means that when heated it can become softer in order to be moulded and will then harden when cooled without any alteration to the material’s properties. The plastic is lightweight, strong, impact resistant and chemical resistant. LDPE is an ideal material for the manufacturing of thin, flexible products such as plastic bags, shrink-wrap, stretch film, container lids, squeezable bottles and so on.
PP - PP is the abbreviation of Polypropylene, which is a thermoplastic made from the monomer propylene. Being a thermoplastic means that when heated it can become softer in order to be moulded and will then harden when cooled without any alteration to the material’s properties. PP is tough, lightweight, chemical resistant and moisture resistant. The plastic is used for a wide range of products, such as packaging products, automotive parts and consumer goods.
PS - PS is the abbreviation of Polystyrene, a hydrocarbon polymer made from the monomer styrene. It is a thermoplastic, which means that when it is heated it can become soft enough to mould and then harden again when cooled. PS can come in the form of a solid plastic or a rigid foam. Solid PS is commonly used in items such as medical test tubes, household smoke alarm housings, CD cases and yoghurt pots. Foam PS is frequently used as packing material.
PC - PC is the abbreviation for Polycarbonate. Polycarbonates are a group of thermoplastic polymers that contain within their chemical structure carbonate groups. PC is very strong, impact resistant, heat resistant, chemical resistant and lightweight. This plastic is commonly used in items such as parts for appliances, automotive parts, construction parts, medical gear, consumer products and food packaging.
ABS - ABS is the abbreviation of Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene, a polymer made from the monomers acrylonitrile, butadiene and styrene. It is stiff, strong, impact resistant and chemical resistant. It is used in a number of different products such as computer parts, tools, plug socket faces and toys.
EPS - EPS is the abbreviation for Expanded Polystyrene. Polystyrene is a polymer made from the monomer styrene, and EPS is made from beads of Polystyrene expanded by gas. It is lightweight and tough and is good for use as insulation. It is used in a number of different products such as packaging material, furniture and sports equipment.
