Plastic Recycling

Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal helps many companies meet their plastic recycling needs. Companies and organizations involved in the manufacturing, packaging, or distribution of goods involving plastic can benefit from partnering with Elgin to recycle their plastic. Not only do we provide an easy and convenient way to get rid of your plastic responsibly, but depending on the quantity and quality, we may even pay you for it!

When it comes to recycling plastic, the chosen processes are a common concern for manufacturing companies. Plastic scrap left over from manufacturing and packaging processes can quickly build up, taking up valuable space and requiring additional effort in waste management. At Elgin Recycling & Scrap Metal, we bale the scrap plastic, making them deliverable for mills all over the country. Some of the types of plastics we recycle are listed below.

  • Polyethylene-HDPE, LDPE
  • Polypropylene
  • Styrene
  • Shrink/Stretch Film
  • Bubble Wrap
  • PVC
  • Vinyl Siding
  • ABS
  • Super Sac

At Elgin, we strive to make sure that choosing us to help you with plastic recycling is both a profitable and convenient experience. We make this possible by having multiple facilities all over the Chicagoland area. Whether you're based in Elk Grove Township or Crystal Lake, you can be sure you don't have to drive too far to bring in your recyclable loads.

Too busy to bring your recyclable loads in yourself? Don't worry – we can pick them up for you. We understand that on certain occasions you may have a big amount of plastic to recycle or would want to recycle more than just your plastic waste, and transporting these yourself is close to impossible. For such instances, we offer full-service trucking. We've got roll-off boxes, box trucks with lift gates, van trailers, gondolas, flatbeds, gaylords, and dump hoppers to suit your recycling needs.

Give us a call or fill out an online form to request for a pickup.
