Plant Pot Recycling

Contrary to common belief, plastic plant pot recycling is indeed possible! We are proud to announce that we are able to recycle Polypropylene plant pots & trays here at DCW Polymers!

There is a misconception that black plastic cannot be recycled, but that’s simply because they contain pigments which make them undetectable to the sorting machinery used to sort plastics.

At DCW Polymers Ltd we sort all our plastics by hand, so we are able to recycle them easily. Furthermore, we can close the loop in-house as we recycle Polypropylene plant pots and trays into our sustainable outdoor products!

How does Plant pot recycling work?

Our process involves shredding the plastic plant pots and trays, then granulating and extruding the material into planks. Finally, these planks are used for fencing, decking and our outdoor product range. Your old plastic plant pot could turn into a bench, dog jump or a planter!

How do i prepare my plant pots for recycling?

Plant pots should be clean and free of any labels or inserts in order for us to recycle them.

Where do i send my plant pots for recycling?

Currently, you can send your plant pots to us for recycling here in Exeter. We are actively looking for partners to work with who can offer public drop-off locations too!
