Curb-side recyclable packaging
Tri-Pack only works with polypropylene. The reason behind this is simple, polypropylene is 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly. As a business, we focus on minimising waste; whether this be wasted costs or waste product that ends up in landfill
We, therefore, specialise in providing businesses with readily recyclable packaging that is free from nasty chemicals, and hard-to-recycle plastics.Get a quote...
What’s the difference?
Recycled packaging, as the name suggests means that the raw material used to form the packaging has previously been used in a former state. Tri-pack manufactures all packaging using polypropylene (PP5). Before our packaging reaches you, it is likely to have been packaging previously. That’s because we operate a zero-waste policy.
The difference between recycled packaging and recyclable packaging can be misleading. While many forms of packaging are recyclable, it doesn’t mean the original packaging product you purchase is made from recycled material.
All Tri-packs products are both recycled and recyclable, creating a closed-loop processing, eliminating waste and reducing carbon.Enquire today

We love the turtles!
Because all of Tri-packs plastic packaging solutions are 100% recyclable, they do not end up in rivers, seas and oceans. In fact, we have very strong views on the plastic that does end up there.
It would be our dream to ensure all plastic packaging used around the world is 100% recyclable packaging so it can be used time and time again, not dumped and not wasted. For too long the planet has been wasting precious resources. So, from our plant in Grimsby, we started our war on bad plastics and vow to only use polypropylene which will not harm these beautiful creatures.
How to recycle our packaging
Currently, not all councils across the UK, accept PP5 in their general plastic recycling. However, this is expected to change over the coming years. Tri-pack is aiming to collect back all of it’s packaging from distributors for in-house recycling by 2022.
When it comes to the retail point of delivery, our packaging can either be segregated and sold for plastics recycling or baled with conventional machinery along with the general waste. This will allow for cost savings on skips, landfill tax, and even packaging waste levy.
The future of recycling
Tri-Pack aim to be a cut above the rest when it comes to recycling.
We are currently working with the leading experts in the recycling industry to help develop a sustainable and commercially viable closed loop supply chain for our polypropylene products.
This will help deliver real environmental improvements and cost-saving when compared to other forms of packaging.
Tri-Pack are aspiring to be the UK leader in recycling their own material. Currently manufacturing all products which are 100% recyclable and environmentally friendly. Tri-Pack are aiming to take this to the next level by opening their own recycling plant which will not only reproduce all of their own product into new packaging but will be able to handle third party plastic waste simultaneously.
Watch this space!
We feel better knowing all our packaging is not only strong and robust but 100% recyclable by any waste company.
