Dagenham PRF: Our Dedicated Milk Bottle Recycling Facility

At Dagenham, a remarkable journey begins for plastic milk bottles collected from London and various parts of the UK. Upon arrival, these bottles undergo sorting, shredding and washing, culminating in their transformation into high-quality food-grade HDPE pellets. These recycled plastic pellets are then turned into new milk bottles and other food-grade products, closing the loop and reducing environmental impact.

Within just two weeks, the entire milk bottle recycling process from bottle collection to pellet production is completed, ensuring a swift and seamless transition towards sustainability.
