Environmental Responsibilities

Looking after the environment is very important to our company and a key consideration for Solent Plastics. As a responsible supplier of plastic containers, we do our absolute best to care for our surroundings.

There are plenty of benefits to recycling plastics, especially since they are now accounting for a larger proportion of our nation's waste. Plastic accounted for less than 1% of Britain's waste in 1960. By 2012, this figure had risen to 12%, with landfill space struggling to cope.

Recycling plastics conserves natural resources such as water, natural gas, petroleum and coal and the energy required to create new plastic.

Solent Plastics is a great believer in responsible plastic product disposal and recycling. In addition to stocking a large range of products manufactured from recycled plastic, we also sell a selection of recycling bins to help with customers' efforts at work, school or in the home.

Our durable recycling storage and plastic waste bins promote easy and efficient waste segregation for home or office use. Suitable for indoor or outdoor applications, many are colour-coded to make recycling even easier. They are widely used in retail premises, hospitals, colleges, the hospitality industry, schools, staff areas, airports, restaurants and for domestic applications.

Many of our products are made from recycled plastic, including our ECO recycled mobile plastic storage tanks. Our ECO value range of black tapered mobile tanks provides the same quality and specification as our standard coloured tank range, but with extra savings for our customers - the recycled black material is of the same strength, but it is also environmentally friendly and ideal for all non-food industrial and commercial uses.

Our used plastic boxes, crates and containers support environmentally friendly practices and we buy in bulk so that we can offer our customers huge savings on their storage requirements. Available in different sizes, from the 10-litre stackable storage box to the 53 Litre Heavy Duty Black Attached Lid Container / Lidded Plastic Storage Box, the other Eco way of looking at our used range is that we are taking boxes at the end of their life with one user and reselling them – so they can be used again and again!
