A Fenland recycling company is offering £300 per tonne for damaged car bumpers. “Bring us today’s unwanted bumpers and we’ll turn them into tomorrow’s brand-new ones,” says MBA Polymers UK.

The company operates from Manea Road, Wimblington, and says they welcome bumpers from businesses and sole traders directly “allowing firms of all sizes to get paid for this high-quality recyclable plastic”.

It has offered a 4-point guide to how it works

  1. Remove the bumpers from the vehicles
  2. Bring them to the MBA site in Wimblington
  3. Weigh in and let the Weighbridge Operator know you’re taking advantage of the bumper offer
  4. Receive £300 for every tonne – as quick as the same day!

“End-of-life bumpers don’t keep anyone safe, but recycling them can protect our whole planet,” says the company on its website.

“Bumper to bumper, box to box, we focus on developing real-world closed-loop solutions, because it’s quicker and more energy efficient to convert a bumper into a new bumper than into a plant pot.

MBA Polymers UK has launched a new car bumper recycling service aimed at independent approved treatment facilities (ATFs), automotive recyclers and breakers yards.

“By bringing the bumpers you no longer need to us, you’re protecting our precious planet for generations to come.”

MBA Polymers UK says its car bumper recycling service is aimed at independent approved treatment facilities (ATFs), automotive recyclers and breakers yards.

“MBA Polymers UK will pay a competitive price for damaged car bumpers and those from end-of-life vehicles (ELVs) due to be recycled,” says a company spokesperson.

“We will then use this material to create innovative new recycled polymers which can be used in the next generation of vehicles.

“By separating out bumpers before a vehicle is recycled, MBA Polymers UK can increase the efficiency of its processes and limit the risk of contaminants to create the higher-performance sustainable materials that car makers increasingly demand.”

MBA Polymers UK’s network of four site sites are located in Wimblington (Cambridgeshire), Worksop (Nottinghamshire), Duddeston (West Midlands) and Dover (Kent).

But it is only at Worksop and Wimblington where the scheme is operating.

The spokesperson said: “The new service will significantly reduce the amount of plastic from ELVs that ends up in landfill each year and help the UK automotive industry comply with the EU’s draft ELV Directive which requires car makers to use 25% recycled plastic in their new cars (25% of which must come from ELVs).”
