We Recycle and Upcycle soft PVC!

TARPREC collects, recycles and upcycles soft PVC materials. We primarily collect old trailer-curtains, as well as similar materials. Following this, it is exported to our partners where it is manufactured into various products. These include bags, wallets computer sleeves and so much more.

We make a difference!

There are various motivating factors behind what we do. Long story short, the recycling organisations in Denmark have trouble processing and disposing of soft PVC. Moreover, there are two ways of dealing with PVC’s; burning it as normal trash or disposing of it in landfills. When PVC is heated or burned, dangerous substances are released into the atmosphere, further contributing to global pollution. Lastly, when PVC is disposed of in landfills, the decomposition of PVC releases harmful substances into the soil. We prevent those scenarios by recycling and upcycling PVC’s as much as possible.

We make it easy for your business!

Sorting, removing and organising PVC in an ethical and defensible way can be a costly affair. But it doesn’t have to be that way. At TARPREC we take care of all the administrative, logistical and production work. The only requirement we have for your business is that the materials be made available to us for collection or delivery.

WILL YOUR COMPANY HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE?

At TARPREC, we do our best every day to contribute to a more sustainable world. You can help make a difference. It is easier than you think. Just let us pick up your old tarpaulins and similar material. This way you can save money while helping to achieve some of the UN’s SDG’s (Sustainable Development Goals).

We want to ensure responsible consumption and production

We want to ensure responsible consumption and production. We must reduce CO2 emissions as soon as possible. We can achieve this by changing the way we produce and consume goods. Therefore, one of TARPREC’s goals is to use only material that has already been used before. We recycle at least 90% of the PVC material we collect. Simultaneously, we want to influence the way we use our shared resources and how we dispose of toxic waste and pollutants. Hence, we encourage businesses and consumers to reduce, reuse and recycle their waste. In the same way we motivate our partners and other companies to work more sustainably.

We contribute to climate action

Greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise and today are over 50% higher than the level in 1990. Global warming is causing changes in our climate, which threatens irreversible consequences if we do not act now. At TARPREC, among other things, we are aware of the production of PVC material that contributes to the climate problems. Our goal is to reduce the incineration and disposal of soft PVC by recycling and upcycling for new and transformed products. This is how we can help minimise the amount of soft PVC in Danish landfills and at the same time reduce CO2 emissions by keeping PVC out of incineration plants.

AT TARPREC WE BELIEVE IN UPCYCLING

At TARPREC we believe in Upcycling 

Upcycling extends the life of materials. This creates a whole new product out of something that would usually be considered useless. The soft PVC we get from our partners opens unlimited possibilities to upcycle and the only boundaries are set by the imagination.

How does it work? 

After receiving the used truck tarpaulins, we begin by stripping them of all chords, metal hinges, wheels and stickers. Secondly, we clean all the tarpaulins so as to remove as much sign of wear and tear as possible. We then proceed to sort the tarpaulins by colour and quality. The tarpaulins are now ready to be upcycled, thus completing the technical circuit. At TARPREC, we believe in sustainability and this is reflected in our everyday efforts to ensure the recycling of soft PVC.
