PS Recycling

Polystyrene Recycling

CJM can ensure your EPS (expanded polystyrene) waste is 100% recycled.  We offer industry leading rebates and buy PS & EPS from waste companies, engineering and manufacturing businesses from across the UK.

Expanded Polystyrene

EPS is a very light material and takes up lots of space in waste containers. As well as taking full briquetted loads, CJM can offer a free site audit and equipment to suit all business needs and requirements. This will increase recycling rates, reduce costs and generate maximum revenue for your business.

CJM can also provide recycling solutions for semi flexible PS such as yogurt pots, seed trays and skeletal waste.

The PS recycling process

Polystyrene is a hard, stiff, brilliantly transparent synthetic resin produced by the polymerization of styrene. It is widely employed in the food-service industry as rigid trays, disposable eating utensils, and foamed cups, plates and bowls.

To recycle, waste polystyrene is typically fed into a bespoke compactor. It is then churned and cut by internal meshing blades, reducing the polystyrene into minuscule parts which are then re-compacted into a denser form.

Polystyrene Recycling

The amount of polystyrene collected and recycled has increased in the last 25 years.  Recycling and other recovery processing routes help reduce environmental impacts, as well as save costs, across the construction, manufacturing and retail sectors in particular.

CJM can ensure your PS waste is recycled.  We buy polystyrene from waste collection companies and from engineering and manufacturing businesses from across the UK.  We also offer highly competitive rebates on polystyrene. Contact us to learn more.
