Our specialist areas

Since 1987, we have been collecting and marketing plastic waste and scrap products, on behalf of well-known manufacturers all over the world: injection moulders, recyclers, distributors and extruders.

The waste sector is evolving in line with society’s consumption habits and regulatory changes.
