ENVIRONMENTAL

We have worked hard over recent years to ensure our impact on the environment is minimised and that our waste is at an absolute minimum. Our key environmental highlights include;


   Our barrier VSP and MAP trays incorporate a core of renewably sourced plant based plastic that reduces the overall content of petroleum derived plastic. These trays are fully recyclable in PET waste streams.

   All our PET and LDPE production waste is granulated or compacted and then sent back to plastic manufacturers for recycling into the same raw material (ie a closed loop) or where not possible it is used to make other plastic products.

   PVC off cuts from our fabrication workshop is collected and sent back to manufacturers for recycling

   Other types of plastic off cuts are collected and retained for re-use by ourselves or made available to local schools and clubs for tuition and projects

   Our general waste is separated into recyclable bins for collection by contractors
