Plastic Recycling Targets Set has reaffirmed its position as the responsible plastic pallet company after smashing its long-term recycling targets two years ahead of schedule. The business exceeded its original goal to recycle more than 1,500 tonnes of plastic by 2025, and now plans to hit 5,000 tonnes by the end of the decade.

The Eastbourne-based company – one of the UK’s leading providers of sustainable plastic pallets and boxes – has been on a long-term mission to create responsible supply chains through a number of initiatives. This included the launch of a first-of-its-kind recycling scheme in 2019, which aims to help other businesses recycle plastic by collecting and transporting it from the UK to its recycling centre in Belgium.

The original target was to recycle 1,500 tonnes of plastic by the end of next year, which was surpassed by the end of 2023. In response to this success, is now committed to recycling a whopping 5,000 tonnes by 2030 – and they have already made great strides in the first half of 2024. This year alone, the company has recycled 74 tonnes, bringing the overall total to 1,591, the equivalent of 280 truckloads.

As part of its commitment to promote a circular economy, promises to collect and recycle all plastic pallets and boxes at the end of their service lives – regardless of who supplied them. In addition, 93% of the innovative products the business supplies are made from 100% recycled plastic.

Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of, said: “It is clear that our commitment to sustainability has resonated deeply within our industry and beyond. Surpassing our initial recycling targets ahead of schedule is a testament to the collective efforts of our team, partners, and customers, who share our vision for a more responsible and sustainable future. Looking ahead, we are not just raising our targets; we are raising the bar for what is possible in plastic recycling. Our new goal of 5,000 tonnes by the end of the decade is ambitious, but with the continued support and dedication of everyone involved, we are confident in our ability to achieve it and drive meaningful change in supply chains across the UK.”
