Veka Recycling Ltd. has added a waste PVC collection and processing facility to its United Kingdom operation with the acquisition of family-run Trafford Services for an undisclosed sum. 

The Bilston, England, site in the West Midlands adds 20,000 square feet of weighbridge, processing and storage facilities to Veka Recycling’s business. Post-industrial and post-consumer PVC window frame material is reduced in size and sent in loads of 24 metric tons to Kent where it is processed to a high standard of purity for use in new goods.

Veka invested more than 1 million pounds ($1.67 million) in Kent in late 2013 to boost PVC recycling.

“Having this second centrally-located site means that local installers, fabricators and waste management companies can benefit from our reliable service with prompt payment for waste PVC frames,” said Tony Cattini, managing director of Veka Recycling.

“Trafford Services has worked closely with us since 2007, so the company is already familiar with our focus on getting the infeed quality right and reducing contamination. This is vital in maintaining the high quality of our 100 percent recycled PVC-U pellet and micronized PVC-U (pulver),” he added.
