Post-Consumer Plastic

What is post-consumer plastic (and why is it so important) ?


There are two types of recycled plastic: post-process and post-consumer. When people talk about ‘recycled’ plastic, they are referring to post-process plastic in the majority of cases.

Post-process recycled plastic
This is plastic that has been collected at the plastic moulding factory, and would normally be thrown away (off-cuts or rejects, for instance), but is instead re-used in the moulding process. Some mouldings unavoidably produce scrap and, in some cases, this occurs on a large scale. This type of recycling is relatively straightforward as there is a great deal of control over material type, consistency and almost zero contamination.

Post-consumer recycled plastic
This is plastic that has been made into a product which, once its intended purpose is fulfilled, has then been collected, cleaned, reprocessed and remade into something new. Products made from post-consumer plastic close the loop, diverting plastic products from the landfill site and instead allowing them to be recycled (in its truest sense) into something else. Unfortunately, it is difficult to recycle post-consumer plastic; there are economic implications (collection, cleaning, sorting, re-processing, distribution etc) as well as physical issues such as irregularity in colour and grade, and contamination.

uBin: the world’s first (and only!) post-consumer bin
We are delighted to announce that we have successfully managed these difficulties to bring this world first: a recycling bin made from plastic that was once yoghurt pots and margarine tubs in your own home!

Please note that due to colour availability and colour accuracy requirements, we have had to manufacture the coloured insert from 100% post-process recycled plastic.
