Innovation is at the heart of everything we do

From award winning products to vanguards of the circular economy we innovate at every step

Innovation is in our DNA

As well as developing our products we also innovate across our business to help our customers run their businesses better, save money and reduce their carbon footprint.

Not only are we one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of refuse sacks, making over 30 million refuse sacks per week, we are also at the forefront of the circular economy as Europe’s largest recycler of waste polythene.

We have created the UK’s largest polythene recycling infrastructure across our four Environment Agency accredited UK sites, with the ability to reprocess in excess of 70,000 tonnes each year of post-use material from commercial, retail, industrial and agricultural markets. This recycled polythene is used to produce products such as our award winning Green Sack™. The Green Sack™ range is made in the UK from 100% recycled British farm waste plastic that might otherwise be burnt or sent to landfill.

Made from super strength film and used bale wrap the Green Sack™ out performs other refuse sacks on the market, with up to ten times more tear resistance of other leading refuse sacks.

About us

We are the UK’s largest manufacturer of refuse sacks and Europe’s largest recycler of waste polythene.

With over 30 years of experience we are the market leading manufacturer and supplier of refuse sacks and ancillary products for the healthcare, facilities management, local authority (including waste management) and retail sectors in the UK.

Our four manufacturing and recycling sites across the UK at Dumfries, Heanor, Rhymney and Stroud employ over 400 members of staff.

RPC bpi refuse (formerly known as BPI Recycled Products) was part of British Polythene Industries PLC until it was purchased by RPC Group Plc in August 2016. RPC is a plastic products design and engineering company with 150 operations in 31 countries and employing over 20,000 people.

We are a UK manufacturer and recycler offering consistent quality of refuse sacks and other products, all of which have the necessary technical accreditations to certify they meet the highest industry technical standards.

We are committed to innovation in everything we do. We continuously invest in new machinery and technology and create new products to help us stay ahead of the competition and to meet the evolving needs of our customers.

We also offer a first class customer service. Whether it is services such as on-site audits and product rationalisation to help customers save money, or reliable deliveries and quick turnaround of orders, you can depend on us.
