uPVC can be very easily recycled and put straight back into production as new window or door units or a wide range of alternative products. Due to its low cost, the material is still one of the most popular materials used in home improvements, especially for windows and doors. However, when it comes to the end-of-life for these products, they are often dumped in landfill and left. Very often uPVC window and door products are re-used rather that actually being recycled as quite a lot of these products end up in building reuse merchants/reclamation merchants. As a product, uPVC would need broken down into its constituent parts before those parts can be put into the recycling system, if a centre can be found that is able to recycle these particular types of plastics, not all re-cycling centres can after all.
Aluminium however is 100% recyclable, durable and does not degrade over time as other material do. Even when items such as windows and doors reach their ‘end of life’, unlike steel, uPVC or wood, the aluminium is still fully recyclable. At BB Fabrications UK Ltd, all of our waste aluminium as well as any aluminium products that come back to us will be transported to a recycling centre to be melted down and the aluminium ingots are then sold back into the aluminium industry for any purpose from drinks cans to cars or even new aluminium windows and doors. With thermally broken systems there is an element of thermoplastic (either Polyamide or Polyetherimide), which will also be re-cycled (as above, assuming a centre can be found that is capable of re-cycling these plastic components. The re-cycling centre that we use does re-cycle the Polyamide/Polyetherimide plastics as well.
