Can You Recycle UPVC Windows?
Are you thinking of replacing your windows and doors in 2021? If so, you may be wondering how to dispose of your existing uPVC windows. Happily, this is quite easy with our uPVC recycling services. What’s more, it’s good for the environment!
uPVC (which stands for unplasticised polyvinyl chloride) is widely used in the creation of window and door frames. It’s also a widely used material for plastic pipes and drainage systems. It is similar to PVC, which you’ve probably heard of, however, uPVC is much more environmentally friendly and recyclable.
Here at DP Skip Hire, we are committed to operating sustainably. Currently, 90% of all waste that is brought to our depot is fully recycled, as part of our zero waste to landfill strategy. This includes uPVC doors and windows!
Is uPVC recyclable?
The polymer structure of uPVC means it can be recycled once its lifespan has been reached. The uPVC frames are shredded and any stray pieces of metal removed before being put through a granulation process. These uPVC granules are then treated to remove dust and static before being sold on to create new uPVC frames or pipes.
It’s that simple!
