Discover Our Recycling Process

Once collected the materials of the toys will be separated. Plastics are size-reduced (made smaller by being shredded or ground), then melted and reformatted into pellets, flakes, or a powder format. Metals and aluminium are shredded and smelted into metal sheeting, ingots, or bar stock. Natural fibres are converted into a material called “shoddy” that is used for insulation and product stuffing.
