55 Gallon Plastic Drum Recycling

Shred, Wash, Regrind, Remelt… Reprocess


Transporting less than 100 drums per pick-up isn’t feasible without a charge due to the cost of freight, insurance, and labor.

We specialize in the end of life stage of 55 Gallon Poly Drums for High Volume Generators.

  • Shred: Breaking down the drums for easier processing.
  • Wash: Ensuring all residues are removed.
  • Regrind: Turning the drums into reusable material.
  • Remelt: Preparing the material for its next life.
  • Reprocess: Creating new, valuable products.

We Handle All Types Of Drums For Recycling:

  • 5-Gallon Jugs
  • 35-Gallon Jerri-Cans
  • 55-Gallon Poly Drums

All drums are made from HMW HDPE, which is fully recyclable into new construction products.

To transport scrap drums for processing, they must be BALED/CRUSHED, SHREDDED, or GROUND.  This ensures a heavy shipment and makes a program logistically possible.
