- Waterford City Council plastic recycling is similar to others in that it does kerbside collection of grade & plastic.
The recovered plastic is sent to Cherry Polymers in Northern Ireland, they say they will have one of the only closed loop recycling plants when it is completed in early 2010. Their core business is plastic pipe manufacturing, in which they extrude HDPE storm water and surface water drainage systems from reprocessed HDPE. See their site for some information on what happens to the plastics they receive.
Mr Binman processes it's own waste and sends most of its plastic to AWS Ecoplastics in the UK and are currently in discussion with Cherry Polymers also.
