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.

All roads lead to POLLUTEC!

A new edition of the POLLUTEC exhibition will be held in Lyon next week, from October 10 to 13.
Created in 1978, this regional event has over the years become the international benchmark for ecological transition issues. So it’s only natural that our teams should meet long-standing partners on site, and make new contacts as part of 1.08 RECYCLAGE’s rapid expansion. Especially at a trade show just 30 minutes from our Blyes plant!
