How To Sell PP Super Sacks for Recycling

Super sacks have value on the secondary market. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to sell your PP Supersacs for the best price:

  1. Sort and Clean

    Sort the PP super sacks by color and clean them thoroughly to remove any residual content, such as food or chemical residue. This is an important step to ensure that the recycled material is of good quality.  Remove dirty liners and discard of soiled supersacs.

  2. Bale & Stage For Shipment

    Getting a shipment as heavy as possible will save money on freight and improve the value picked up at your dock.  Use headers if making downstroke bales.  Stage bales on pallets to maintain cleanliness.

  3. Offer Material To Buyers

    Take pictures and send them to a plastic broker.  Clearly show the staged material and how it will ship.  Keep it clean, uniform and dry to get the best price for your scrap PP Bulk Bags.

  4. Ship The Product

    Load the trailer or container with as many bales as possible.  This may require turning some on their sides and squeezing them in to get 5 bales to a row instead of 3.  This is important as it helps increase the weight and reduce the cost of transportation.  Remember to count bales and take pictures at loading – one per row.  Send over the paperwork and loading pics to your buyer promptly to get paid.
