BKP introduce a brand-new service to recondition contaminated containers for reuse


As part of our ongoing upgrades and site developments at their site in Romsey, BKP Waste & Recycling recently invested in a brand-new Container Reconditioning and Recycling Plant. The process is designed to thoroughly clean and optimally recondition contaminated containers for reuse, and granulate plastic and steel components of small or damaged containers for onward recycling.

The new facility enables IBCs, drums, or smaller containers to be decontaminated using the best available technology [BAT]. IBCs are then sent through an internal wash station, delivering a high level of impingement to all internal surfaces, a drying station to remove excess water, and undergoes pressure testing to ensure the container abides by UN standards and is safe for reuse. Small or damaged containers are washed, granulated, and used as a raw material for manufacturing new containers.

Stuart McNish, Technical Director of BKP Waste & Recycling, is enthusiastic about the new business venture, stating that “the new plant is one of many exciting developments that has taken place at our site over the past year. The addition of this process demonstrates our commitment to introducing innovative in-house treatment processes to the highest environmental standards. This facility adds another solution that will directly benefit our customers by reducing their carbon footprint and achieving their goals of a circular economy.”

Following delivery of the plant to BKP’s waste treatment and transfer station in April, the process has undergone successful commissioning and is ready to accept contaminated containers for reconditioning or recycling.
