Achieve your sustainability ambitions without compromising performance.

Thanks to our decades of experience and continual investment in state of the art machinery, we are able to supply recycled polythene of the highest quality. We work closely with our customers to deliver sustainable raw materials which avoid compromising on product quality, plant efficiency or productivity whilst meeting your commercial and sustainability objectives.

Key to running a highly efficient extrusion or moulding operation is a reliable supply of highly consistent feedstock. Chase Plastics are ideally suited to overcome the inherent inconsistency in recycled materials. RECOTHENE™ recycled polythene is batch blended between the recycling and final pelletisation processes, ensuring each batch consists of homogenous pellets of the highest quality.

Embracing the challenge of cleaning the oceans. 

Partnering with Summit Systems and Ocean Integrity, a global enterprise dedicated to recovering ocean plastics, we recycle ocean-recovered Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) for use in the manufacturing supply chain where it contributes to the Circular Economy. Together, we are dedicated to eliminating plastics from the oceans and ensuring recovered plastics are recycled and do not end up in landfill or incineration.  

Plastics are collected using Ocean Integrity’s patented MPEDs – Micro Plastic Elimination Devices - that can retrieve microplastics down to 65 microns.  Indigenous fishermen are paid 4 times above minimum wage to collect plastics using MPEDs. To learn more check out our video here.  Ocean rPE is available directly from Chase Plastics or via Summit Systems.

Providing Solutions to the Plastic Tax

The United Kingdom Government has introduced a tax on plastic packaging with less than 30% post consumer recycled content. The UK Plastics Pact also sets an objective for packaging to contain at least 30% post consumer content.  Chase Plastics is ideally placed to enable its customers to meet these objectives. Our Customers are achieving superb results by introducing RECOTHENE™ recycled polythene into high performance packaging applications, at addition rates in excess of 30%.  Customers also benefit from the added assurance that all of our products are EuCertPlast accredited, ensuring the highest standards of material traceability.

Buying Waste Plastic

Chase Plastics buys all types of clean polythene packaging waste and production waste.  We specialise in providing advice to companies on how to prepare their plastics for recycling in order to maximise value and to ensure that their plastic is fully recycled in the United Kingdom, rather than being dumped overseas.  Chase Plastics have never been involved in the export of plastic waste, we recycle 100% of the material we buy into a valuable raw material. Thanks to our EuCertPlast accreditation our supply partners have total assurance that their waste is being recycled in the United Kingdom
