Preparing your Corflute® Sign for recycling

So that we can recycle your used election signs, we need you to check for contaminants and remove them. At Corex Recycling, we refer to a contaminant as the presence of materials or a substance other that Corflute®. We need your Corflute® Signs to be free of contaminates so that we can; shred, melt and make recycled pellets from it which enables us to make products for tomorrow.

It’s easier than you think! Here are the steps to check for and remove contaminants:

Checking for contaminants

Your Corflute® election sign may have no contaminants. If your graphics have been printed directly to the Corflute® and there are no eyelets, you probably have a contaminant free sign.

Often, election signage doesn’t need protective PVC film over the surface or eyelets to protect the holes that allow it to be secured to a fence. People tend to use these extra elements when a sign is being used for longer than 6 months.

Please remove the below contaminants
  • Eyelets around the holes – plastic and metal
  • PVC protective film – if your Corflute® sign is super shiny and you can pick a layer of plastic from a corner, this is PVC
  • PVC pockets
  • Paper
  • Adhesive tapes, glues, cable ties
  • Wood – like in garden stakes that may support the sign
