The Complexity of Plastic Recycling

The potential for recycling plastics is vast, yet the extent of their recyclability hinges on technical, economic, and logistical factors. Despite these challenges, nearly all types of plastics can be recycled, underscoring the importance of advancing recycling technologies and infrastructure.

Reconditioned Pallets: A Step Towards Sustainability

As one of the UK’s largest distributors of reconditioned plastic pallets, PMN offers cost-effective and durable options for customers, aligning with global efforts to reduce plastic waste. Their innovative recycling practices ensure responsible recycling or repair of old and discarded plastic pallets, showcasing a pioneering approach to sustainability in the industry.

The Journey of Recycled Plastic Pallets

PMN’s plastic pallets begin their life as recycled waste, transformed into granules of plastic and then moulded into strong, robust pallets. This process not only fulfils storage and transport needs but also promotes environmental sustainability. Further recycling and onsite repairs of these pallets underscore PMN’s commitment to reducing energy consumption and waste.

The Plastic Packaging Tax: A Regulatory Push for Recycling

Introduced on 1st April 2022, the plastic packaging tax aims to incentivize the use of recycled materials in packaging, targeting UK producers and importers. This tax is a strategic move to drive the demand for recycled plastic, stimulate recycling levels, and foster a circular economy for a sustainable future in plastic recycling.

PMN: Leading the Way in Sustainable Packaging

With 95% of its products exempt from the Plastic Packaging Tax, PMN stands as a premier solution provider for sustainable packaging, reflecting its commitment to environmental stewardship.

Recycling in Practice: The Honda Case Study

PMN’s involvement in clearing redundant plastic packaging from the closed Honda car factory in Swindon exemplifies effective recycling in practice. By redirecting over 200 tonnes of plastic waste for reuse, PMN has significantly contributed to the sustainability of various industries, particularly within the EV Automotive sector, where their reconditioned pallet boxes offer a green, clean, and carbon-neutral solution.
