Recycling process

YCA Recycling use the most advanced equipments to handle large volume of collected materials. Along with our understanding of plastic, cardboard & paper, and scrap metal as recycling specialists, materials are treated in different ways. 

Plastic recycling

All accepted plastics will be sorted into categories. 

All plastics will go through a process of granulating, cleaning and pelletizing. The granlues and pellets will be sent to a manufacturer to be moulded back into plastic products.

Cardboard and paper recycling

All collected cardboard and paper will be sorted to ensure they are as close to 100% free of contamination as possible.

All cardboard and paper will go through a process of re-pulping and screening. The pulp will be cleaned for the deinking process and then poured out to dry and will be turned in to paper. All paper is then rolled and to be re-manufactured into cardboard or paper-related products.
