What happens to your plastic containers and drums once they come to KWM?

Your plastic containers or drums are checked for chemicals and residue and then they are processed at our site in the way of baling or shredding into 40mm pieces.

Once we have a full load of the plastic containers or drums we then ship them out to be washed and pelleted.

The pellets are then melted down to form another item.
