We have 3 old to new uPVC recycling plants in France, Germany and the UK. Visit our VEKA Recycling sister company's website for more information.
Older UPVC window frames and doors are highly recyclable. The first step in the process is to remove all of the metal and glass fittings from the frame. Once this has been done, the UPVC components are shredded into small beads of plastic. Once processed, these beads can then be mixed into new UPVC and used in the manufacture of new windows and doors.
The UPVC can be re-used many times - this saves a great deal of energy and reduces the amount of waste that needs to be sent to landfill making UPVC windows a sustainable product that not only helps to improve your home's energy efficiency, but also requires less energy to manufacture in the first place.
