We trade in plastics

Facts:

  tons of plastic products which equals the massive energy equivalent of powering a 60 watt light bulb for
  hours.

Go big

In order to maximise the revenue for both the supplier and purchaser, we need large volumes to reduce the logistics and production costs.

Wrap it up nicely, please

Recyclable plastics can be presented either on rolls, in bulk bags, baled, re-grinded or pelletized. We prefer single grade loads, however, we accept split loads if the quantities allow for it – please see the list below for the classification of plastic grades.

Over land, over sea

Materials can be moved locally by truck throughout South Africa or exported overseas by shipping it in containers. The presentation of the materials will play a large role as to where it will be sent. To offer our client the best possible price, there should be no cross-contamination of the materials.
