About us

At MacRebur, we have found one simple, clever invention with which we intend to solve three world challenges

Use up millions of tons of waste plastic that sit in our landfill sites

Reduce the millions spent on new roads, maintenance, and pothole repair

Make our roads stronger and longer lasting

MacRebur’s carefully selected plastics, taken from old rubbish, are added into roads to improve strength and durability, whilst reducing the quantity of the oil based bitumen used in a traditional road mix.

Imagine that; your old rubbish can now make our roads stronger and longer lasting…

The origin story

The idea was born when our CEO, Toby, was working in Southern India with a charity helping people who work on landfill sites as ‘pickers’. Their job is to gather potentially reusable items and sell them on to be turned from rubbish into something useful again.

Some of the waste plastics retrieved by the pickers were put into potholes, petrol poured all over them, and the rubbish set alight until the plastics melted into the craters to form a makeshift plastic pothole filler.
Toby thought that our councils might ‘frown upon this’ the UK! So, he got together with two friends, Nick and Gordon, and formed MacRebur. We came up with our innovative idea to take a mix of waste plastics, pelletise them and add them into the making of an enhanced asphalt road.

After 18 months of testing and trials, we had our product ‘MR6’: It is within British and European standards and is a patent pending, high performance, asphalt binder additive that enhances the roads we drive on today.

Potholes

The Problem

  • Dangerous driving and cycling conditions
  • Costly asphalt & bitumen prices for a poor quality product
  • Heavier volumes of traffic & weight of vehicles
  • Councils are struggling to keep up with the rising costs of road maintenance
  • There is currently no product available to reduce the costs of asphalt and make our roads stronger & longer lasting

.

The Solution

  • MR6 – MacRebur’s waste plastic pellets
  • Stronger and longer lasting than standard asphalt
  • Increases lifespan of a road, reduces production costs & reduces maintenance costs

Waste Plastic

The Problem

  • Plastic production is increasing every year
  • Over 40% sent to landfill
  • 5 trillion bits of plastics in our oceans
  • There is no current recycling scheme that uses up waste plastics in roads

.

The Solution

  • MR6 – MacRebur’s waste plastic pellets
  • Made with 100% recycled plastics
  • MR6 pellets replace costly fossil fuel bitumen in the road mix

If you are fed up with potholed roads, passionate about our environment and recycling, and want more for taxpayers’ money, then MacRebur is the solution.
