We have already achieved and surpassed this target. All our polythene bags are fully recyclable and can be produced in several material options.
Polythene waste is a valuable source of local energy through Energy from Waste (EfW). Due to the high calorific value of polythene it is ideal for this purpose, EfW is in use throughout Europe.
Wherever possible we encourage the re-use of our polythene bags. We have successfully re-designed several products from single trip use into a two trip or multi- trip product.
All our polythene bags are fully recyclable and can be produced in degradable material options. Plastic bags are produced from a waste product -ethane, which would otherwise be burnt off in the refining of natural gas.
Goods returned to customer site in polythene packaging The discarded polythene packaging is collated and bailed.
