Re-using plastics that cannot be recycled in Uk
Hi, we’ve just joined your group. Thanks for having us !
We are the Cabinz project, a community group in Chester / N. Wales Uk, that has reused over 200 tonnes of plastic off cuts from composites door factories in 4.5 yrs.
This is combined with other plastics to build mainly insulated shed panels for workshops & build plastic green houses, chicken coops & aviaries.
Open source prototypes & history is at http://www.cabinz.net
We are looking to distribute 4 tonnes a week to groups in the uk for re-use , and suggest international groups contact their local door factories as they have a great source of off cuts, ideal for creative reuse or building stuff like gridbeam / hexayurts.
These door factories recycle everything else , but this plastic has to be landfilled or incinerated as it cannot be recycled, due to it being mixture of fibreglass composite & fire resistant plastic .
We’ve just done a deal to take clearance stock from screw & fitting factories, so can provided fixing to join materials together very cheaply, These fittings can be sent abroad if economically viable
my name is Paul the founder / co-ordinator of cabinz
