ESH Resources started the recycling business back in 1986 as collectors of papers, plastic, metals and other recyclable products. Then we began our relationship with paper mills and started sorting the paper products collected before packing them for processing to create new paper products. After 10 years ago, we expanded our business operation to include processing of PET materials collected from used mineral drinking bottles and plastic food containers. We sort, clean and process them before turning into flakes which are then sent through collection agents and to be exported to China for production of synthetic fabric and other related intermediary products.We realized the importance of waste pollution to the environment created by the plastic waste, which has become more prevalent recently. As such, we have embarked in the operation of collecting, sourcing and buying used minerals from companies, agencies and etc. In return, we pre-clean, sort, crush and soda clean them before making them into PET flakes for our export to the polyester thread manufacturers in overseas. We will then send the PET flakes for export for use as the raw material for a range of products that would otherwise be made of polyester as examples polyester fibres, polyester sheets, strapping, or back into PET bottles. We have recycled and processed over 32,00 tonnes of used plastic PET bottles which were sent for export to produce the polyester items mentioned above.
We have turned this venture into a business, generating jobs for the people in the same community, contributing to the tax revenue of the country, and try to save as many PET bottles as possible from falling into the landfill. As landfills grow, there is not much space left in Malaysia’s urban areas unless everyone has a minor landfill in their backyard! We can’t control the production of the worldwide plastic products, especially the PET bottle and packaging but we help to process them to extend its economic useful life in a more sustainable way for the sake of our future and environment.
