Plastic recycling
Tropical Recycling is primarily interested in following plastics:

PET (Polyethylene terephthalate): Strong, lightweight, waterproof, pressure and shock resistant, this plastic is used to make plastic bottles for soft drinks in particular.

HDPE (High Density Polyethylene): Used to produce high-density plastic containers, detergent packaging, motor oil cans, milk containers, shampoo containers, medicine bottles, soft drink caps, fencing mesh, buried cables and pipes for the transport of gas or water.

Plastic Collection, Sorting and Processing

  • Collection of plastic: bulk (benefits local partners) in big bags and bales.

  • Provision of proper storage (containers, buckets, bags), potentially including compactors.

  • Sorting and baling of the different plastics

  • Processing plastics (grinding, densification, granulation)

  • Quality Control.

Aluminium cans recycling

Environmentally speaking, aluminum cans are an undeniable asset: they are 100% recyclable and never lose their physical properties, regardless of the number of recycling cycles performed on them.

In a circular economy model, aluminum cans fit right in. The collection and recycling of this metal addresses two major economic and environmental issues (reducing manufacturing costs as well as conserving natural resources).

A can can become a brand new can in just 6 weeks!

The 5 Steps of Can Recycling

  1. Sorting

  2. Baling

  3. Grinding

  4. Purification and fusion

  5. Processing of Alloys

Why Aluminum Cans are Interesting:

  • They are lightweight.

  • They are inexpensive.

  • They are highly shock resistant.

  • They have very good thermal conductivity.

  • They are energy efficient.

  • They are recyclable.
