Plastics Recycling

DS Smith’s plastics recycling service is designed to improve your recycling rates, simplify your waste management, and divert waste from incineration and landfill.

Sustainability lies at the heart of the DS Smith business model. We offer full traceability for your material, right up to the end destination, and we ensure that material is transported and recycled in compliance with all local laws.

Recycling Plastics with DS Smith

We’re part of the DS Smith Group, which produces its own extruded and injection-moulded plastic products, and designs them with recyclability in mind. That’s why we’ll work with you to increase your plastics recycling rate. Through our own DS Smith Group manufacturing operations, or our global network of partners, we can provide guaranteed, transparent end destinations for our customers’ material, resulting in a sustainable solution for all plastic waste streams.

Working with us means you’ll benefit from:

  • A pan-European recycling network
  • Closed-loop plastics recycling within the DS Smith Group
  • Recommendations and installation of bespoke equipment
  • Dedicated account management
  • Transparency and compliance
  • Our own logistics fleet
  • A global network of trusted partners

Closed-loop plastics recycling

As part of the DS Smith Group, we make millions of our own packaging products from the materials we collect. And like any other raw material, quality is vital. Our ethos is to work with you to make sure that all materials that can be recycled are recycled, and don’t end up in landfill or incineration. More than that, your plastic waste fuels our plastic packaging manufacturing operations, and our global network of fully audited and compliant reprocessors.

Whether it’s going into our extruded polypropylene plastic signage or injection-moulded beverage crates, we can recycle all common polymers, including:

  • PET
  • HDPE
  • PVC
  • LDPE
  • PP
  • PS

We are also experienced in recycled complex plastic wastes, such as PA, PC, ABS, PC-ABS, POM, and more.

We work with our customers to ensure that they’re getting the most out of their plastics recycling. Our account management team support and advise on how best to segregate materials, delivering more value, and helping customers of all sizes achieve something we call ‘The Power of Less’: less waste and more recycling.

Whether you want to reduce unwanted waste, reach zero waste to landfill, or close the loop on your plastics, we have the experience and expertise to deliver.
