Commodity trading relates to businesses that produce large amounts of recyclable materials, such as cardboard, plastic film, plastic bottles, wood and metal. We help these businesses realise the potential of their waste by extracting the maximum value and selling it on as a commodity. We use our extensive supply chain network to ensure you’re receiving competitive prices based on market rates.
Whether you’re a wholesaler, retailer, manufacturer or logistics specialist, Zest Recycle can help you capitalise on the potential of your waste.
The different types of material that can be traded include but are not limited to:
- Paper and cardboard (news and pamphlets, sorted office paper, white letter paper)
- Plastics (plastic film (LDPE), plastic bottles (PET), milk bottles (HDPE))
- Metals (steel, ferrous and non-ferrous metals, aluminium cans)
When it comes to recycling trading, we help you identify the different grades of materials and most suitable collection method and equipment, so you can achieve the maximum rebate. We will carry out a thorough audit of your waste streams to help you to identify the high-value materials that you generate. We will also work with you to establish the most practical approach that will enable you to grade and separate these materials effectively.
We will collect your recyclables, arrange appropriate transportation and source a suitable processor. Our end market relationships enable us to sell these materials at the best price, meaning you could see a significant rebate for your materials.
Based in Essex, Zest Recycle offers waste trading services and advice to customers all over London and the rest of the UK. Want to squeeze the most out of your high-volume waste streams today? Get in touch.
