Window firms in North West trial SME recycling scheme

A new recycling trial aiming to demonstrate how small businesses can divert their waste from landfill is taking place in Manchester and Liverpool.

The trial is focussing on commercial organisations in the window replacement and glazing sector, and is being managed on behalf of WRAP by consultancy Axion Recycling.

Although flat glass and PVC will be the main materials collected through the new scheme, it is also hoped that metal, paper, plastic film, cardboard and wooden pallets will eventually be collected for recycling as well.

Axion, which has offices in London and Stockport, has already been involved in the recycling of window waste through its Recovinyl PVC recycling initiative, run since last year working with the British Plastics Federation.

Explaining the reasons behind new project, the Waste and Resources Action Programme said many small businesses do not currently recycle their waste, and that effective ways must be identified to help the divert material from landfill.
