Balers are used to compact the plastic, either on customer site or by Cawleys, making it easier to store onsite and transport.
Once the waste is collected by Cawleys it is then sent to be recycled into new plastic products.
At the recycling centre the plastic is sorted and then either melted down directly and moulded into a new shape, or shredded into flakes then melted down before being processed into granulates.
