Luxus invests half a million in plastic processing line


Plastic recycling company Luxus has invested £500,000 in a new processing line that will produce an extra 8,000 tonnes of plastic each year.

The company recycles end of life plastic wheeled bins by washing, shredding, granulating and formulating the polymer so that it can be recycled into material for a new bin.


Luxus managing director Peter Atterby said: “There are two key factors currently driving European growth: an increase in the segregation at source of the household waste stream requiring new bin types and an increase in the size of bins for recyclable waste, while general waste bins are getting smaller.”
