Terralta Recycling, created in 1998, is a company that collects at source, recovers and manages plastic waste. We are located in Gandesa, Catalonia (Spain), occupying an industrial space of more than 10,000 sq m. Our facilities allow us to treat a great variety of post industrial and post consumer plastics, which can then be reincorporated into production processes. It filters and purifies the industrial water to be reused and achieve savings in water use.

Our plastic providers are companies operating in the auxiliary automotive industry, injection, food, refuse collection for recycling, as well as other auxiliary industries that generate post industrial plastic waste. We also provide containers to these companies in order to facilitate the at source plastic collection.

Our products are targeted at industries that manufacture plastic pieces using injection, extrusion and blowing methods, and use recycled plastic as a raw material.

Our daily work consists in converting post industrial and post consumer plastic waste into raw materials that can be reincorporated into production processes:


  • At source collection of plastic materials for companies requiring it
  • Recycling of different types of plastic, in a process that includes:
    • Plastic grinding, including drums, boxes, lumps, no film, etc.
    • Washing the grounded material
    • Classification by density, drying of different types of plastic

We process mainly polyethylene and polypropylene, although we also treat plastics such as PVC, PS, PC and PA. We can offer customized solutions to each client's specific plastic subproduct.
