PolymerTrade was established in 1998, and established as a limited company in 2000, with Per Haakonsen as the owner. From the beginning, the focus has been on exports of plastic waste to material recycling and imports of plastic sheets. The business is in constant development within circularity and we can now produce plastic bags for use in households and industry based on 100% recycled PELD film from Norwegian households and industry.


In 2012, we founded UAB RetroPlast in Lithuania together with a local partner. We now export approx. 8,000 tonnes of mixed plastic waste for sorting in Lithuania.

In total, UAB RetroPlast handles more than 12,000 tonnes of plastic waste annually and has become a significant recycling player in the Baltic States.


We export both production waste, offshore waste and fish farming and packaging plastics. We are approved by Grønt Punkt Norge AS (


In 2013, the share capital was expanded and Resource AS became 50% owner.


In 2020, all activity within recycling in Resource AS and PolyNord AS (with general manager Mikkel Haabeth) was transferred to PolymerTrade AS.


PolymerTrade AS exports approximately 30,000 tonnes of plastic for material recycling which make us one of Norway's largest waste brokers within plastics.
