Thermoplastic films manufacturer Renolit Cramlington Ltd has reduced its plastics waste by 1,200 tonnes annually, helped by Total Recycling Services.
The UK subsidiary of the German Renolit group said it started working with waste management company Total Recycling Services in 2013 and has since more than doubled its recycling rebates.
"As a company, Renolit tries to reuse as much material as possible across our many international sites, each of which specialises in the production of different plastics,” said Caroline Brown, safety environmental coordinator at Renolit, who oversees all environmental and waste procedures on site.
Where Renolit cannot reuse a material, Total Recycling Services handles the waste, making Renolit Cramlington “a zero to landfill” company.
The practice, according to Brown, is part of a "Renolit Goes Circular" waste reduction initiative, which has been launched across the group.
Renolit manufacturer films for interior decorations and produces plastics wastes such as PVC, polymers, acrylic film and plastic packaging.
Total Recycling Services is specialised in recycling, hazardous waste recovery, and industrial services for the commercial and industrial sectors.
