Collecting, processing and trading scrap plastics
from industrial sources throughout Europe

"I enjoyed having you with us and catch the professional spirit you have!"

Leading specialist recycler of PMMA, Germany

GPPS and HIPS (General Purpose Polystyrene and High Impact Polystyrene)

Whether you are injection moulding or extruding your Styrene, Recplas will be happy to collect and reprocess your scrap PS. Our customers include UK based extruders making plant pots, and injection moulders making industrial parts such as reels.

 

We love the economy and ease of recycling HIPS and GP Styrene – once granulated your material will remain within the UK, processed into a finished product by one of our small local end-users.

Recplas is also able to recycle flocked HIPS from thermoformed presentation packaging productions.

Common uses of HIPS and GPPS:

  • Disposable razors
  • Low budget cutlery
  • Disposable cups and plates
  • Packaging materials (protective packaging EPS)
  • Packaging (thermoformed blister)
  • Toys
  • Reels / Spools

It is hard to confuse PS with anything else, but do beware of PVC as it causes huge problems! If you are using ABS alongside HIPS, then it may be worthwhile paying extra attention to segregation.
