Can PVC Be Recycled?
Yes, PVC can be recycled! PVC windows and doors excel in a variety of ways, including thermal efficiency and longevity. These home improvement products can last between 30 to 40 years and can be recycled up to ten times, giving us around 350 years of usage. We work with our sister company VEKA Recycling, to break down old PVC products and turn them into high-quality pellets.

Recycled PVC Pellets Process
From beginning to end, our recycling process is as environmentally friendly as possible. We offer free collection to anyone who wants to dispose of their old windows and doors. Our vehicles use low-emission diesel or LPG (liquified petroleum gas) and use routes that don’t use unnecessary routes.
Once our team collects the PVC windows and doors; they are then taken to our recycling plant. We then break down the materials into size groups and remove any metals or non-PVC products. Our advanced technology helps to remove any hardware accessories that are on the original windows and doors. We continue to break down into size groups and colours to get clean materials.
The final stage is to compress the materials down into contamination-free pellets, which we use through our melt filtration system. We have thoroughly gone through our entire operations to ensure that we are using the best recycling methods available and reducing our carbon footprint levels.
