Your old uPVC windows will be collected using low-emission vehicles with carbon-friendly routes. Our drivers find the best quotes that don’t have unnecessary time spent on the road.

It is important for us to provide raw uPVC material that can be used for a wide range of products within the UK.
Once the material has been shredded, it goes into a sorting system. The uPVC is sorted by size, which allows us to sift through it a lot easier. We go through each of the sizes and then remove any metals or non-uPVC materials. You don’t have to worry about removing handles or additional hardware, as we have the machinery to do this.
We continue to go through the uPVC, removing any metals and colours that cannot be compressed into recycled materials. Once we have pure uPVC material, it goes into the final stage. The material goes through an advanced melt filtration system, turning the recycled uPVC material into pellets.
