Glazing and Window Replacement Sector to Benefit from Recycling Trials

Businesses in the glazing and window replacement sector are the latest to benefit from a series of WRAP (the Waste & Resources Action Programme) trials to improve recycling services for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).

Axion Recycling, a consultancy specialising in developing and implementing technology solutions for the waste management industry, has been awarded WRAP funding to trial recycling services to SMEs operating within the glazing and window replacement sector. Many SMEs in the sector do not currently recycle their waste, and the aim of this trial is to identify convenient and effective ways to divert the material from landfill.

In terms of volume, the majority of the material collected for recycling will be flat glass and PVC, but by collecting other materials, including metal, paper, plastic film, cardboard and wooden pallets, it is hoped that the recycling services will be more attractive to businesses.
