What do thirty blue whales and the plastic recycled in Leeds last year have in common? They both weigh the same.. But think how much more plastic is not being recycled! With pressure on our TV screens and from environmental demonstrations UK-wide, we all need to play our part in recycling more – and [client name] is one of the companies leading the way in this fight.
Virtually no councils recycle some of the most common types of plastics that householders and businesses throw away such as polypropylene and polystyrene (triangles with a 5 or a 6 inside) – but [client name] does – and we are fully licensed and authorised by the Environment Agency to collect and process all types of polymers.
The amounts we simply throw in landfill are staggering, with some ending up in the sea or in our food chain – but [client name] fights back against the plastic tide. The evidence is unarguable: plastic takes up to 1,000 years to degrade in a landfill, but recycling plastic takes 88% less energy than making plastic from raw materials. Not only are you saving the environment and energy, recycling drives down the cost of using plastics if they’re recycled. Our company policy is to supply recyclate to home markets wherever possible -minimising
