Who are we?
Precious Plastic Maastricht is a team of students, graduates and machine builders who were inspired by Dave Hakkens and the global Precious Plastic community to begin a plastics recycling workspace in our city.
We believe that plastic is a precious resource and should be recycled as effectively as possible, which is why we want to build recycling machines and control the process ourselves.
We are based in Maastricht, the Netherlands, and we are pursuing many aspects of plastic recycling, sustainability and community engagement. We are also involved in research and development, and are proud to work closely with the universities and educational institutions in Maastricht.
Plastic collection and recycling
We are collecting large amounts of HDPE and PP in specific colours, thoroughly washing and drying the plastic products, and shredding them using our plastic shredder.
