Waste Management

Monoworld follows a simple & highly efficient guide to waste management which delivers maximum value to its customers, resulting in increased levels of recycling & reduced disposal costs.

Collection & Recycling

Monoworld will collect and recycle products such as paper, cardboard, glass, any form of plastic, metal scrap. The waste is collected and transported to either of the 3 sites located in Sharnbrook (Bedfordshire), Rushden (Northamptonshire) and Wollaston (Northamptonshire) where materials are sorted, baled, washed shredded, granulation, plastics are melted and processed in house. Other materials are supplied to mills for melting and further recycling.

On-site Waste Management & Equipment

Monoworld can provide on-site waste management for customers who are seeking expertise in this area. The company will provide manpower, equipment, such as baling machines, fork trucks, sorting belts, on-site trailers, skips, containers, cages & manage the entire in-house operation.


Monoworld will identify materials which can be recycled. This can significantly reduce the amounts going to landfill. The company can also develop recycling for products which are contaminated, or materials which are difficult to handle. The company would also, working with the customer, develop a recycling action plan, which also allows for the recycling option to be feasible and practical.

Report & Statements for Materials Recycled

Both sites have on-site security monitored weighbridges, which are linked to a computerised fully integrated SAP customer stock control system. All Monoworld customers are provided with reports detailing dates, which products have been collected and recycled, the tonnages collected and the revenue generated for the waste, which can be linked to any of the customers reporting portals for live and paper free reporting.

Full Site and Business Waste Audit

Monoworld will carry out a site audit for its customers and produce a report on how various wastes are being handled & disposed and provide recommendations for improved waste management.

Materials We Recycle







Plastics Recycling

Monoworld sorts and processes all domestic packaging plastics (including PET water and soft-drink bottles, HDPE milk bottles, HDPE detergent bottles, LDPE film (bags, shrink wrap etc), PP pots, tubs and containers (e.g. butter and ice cream tubs).

We recycle the following materials.

  • LDPE (Low Density Polyethylene)
  • HDPE (High Density Polyethylene)
  • PET (Polyethylene Terephthalate)
  • PS (Polystyrene)
  • PP (Polypropylene)


Mixed Bottle Plastic Recycling

Monoworld operates one of the most advanced recycling plants in the UK. The Monoworld Plastic Recovery Facility (PRF) has the capacity to process 88,000 tonnes per year of mixed plastic bottles and plastic pots, tubs and trays (PTT). Our state-of-the-art recycling facilities perform a number of separation and sorting tasks to produce various streams of single material recyclates for additional processing. 

Most UK local authorities now operate a ‘co-mingled’ recycling service for household recyclable waste. Monoworld operates sophisticated modern equipment that uses Infrared and colour-sorting technology to automatically sort the majority of these materials.

Manual fine tuning and quality control ensure the highest quality plastic feedstocks are created for subsequent recycling processes. The main grades processed through the plant are HDPE, PET, PP and PS. We collect plastic waste predominantly from local authorities, supplier chain managers, waste management companies and large national supermarkets.

Plastics Wash and Recycling

Household rigid and packaging rigid contaminated plastics, HDPE bottles, PP pots, tubs, trays and PE/PP rigids are further processed in the plant to produce granules & flakes. The plant has the capacity to process 25,000 tons of waste materials annually

HDPE & PP rigid waste is reprocessed into HDPE Recycled granules & PP Recycled granules for supply into UK manufacturing, contributing to a circular economy and putting plastics packaging waste back into UK plastics manufacturing.

Film Sorting and Recycling

The film sorting and recycling facility has a capacity to process 55,000 tonnes per annum of mixed LDPE commercial & household packaging film waste. Using NIR (Near Infrared) optical sorting technology, material is segregated, all contaminations sorted and baled by polymer type and colour. This sorted material is then granulated and washed and made in LDPE Recycled granules.

The main grades processed through the plant are HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE and PP films. We collect predominantly from UK retailers, waste management companies and MRFs.

LDPE film waste is reprocessed into granules for supply into UK manufacturing contributing to a circular economy and putting plastics packaging waste back into UK plastics manufacturing.

WEEE Plastic Recycling

We can provide recycling of plastics derived from WEEE, such as:

  • Plastics from small domestic appliances SDA plastics
  • Plastics from TV, Computer, Satellite Boxes, and Telecoms equipment

UK Packaging Steel (tin cans) & Aluminium Cans UBC is supplied back into manufacturing and melting into new Steel and Aluminium products contributing to a circular economy and putting metal packaging waste back into the UK & European Metals manufacturing capabilities.
