Cromwell Polythene launches to buy material for recycling


Leeds-based recycling firm Cromwell Polythene has launched a new website that it hopes will help it to secure greater volumes of transit packaging waste and surplus and redundant stock.

Its new website,, will buy material that will be sorted and baled at Cromwell’s 21,000 sq. ft recycling facility, before being returned to the company’s production partners for closed loop recycling into refuse and recycling sacks.


The website will buy redundant stocks of plastic and also cardboard.

Cromwell Polythene managing director Garth Imison said: “As a registered waste carrier and EA accredited exporter, we can offer a secure and auditable trail, from collection to reprocessing.

“What this means to those companies for whom waste management may previously have been a hit and miss affair is that they are dealing with a company on which they can rely – a company that will collect on a regular basis in a professional and reliable manner, that will provide weighbridge receipts for their loads, secure destruction, competitive pricing and perhaps more importantly, prompt and reliable payment.”
