With a busy factory and high workflow, offcuts from the bars of profile and old frames that have been removed from site during our installations require us to put recycling at the forefront of our operation. Rather than put these into landfill, our aim is to separate and recycle as much as we can. We ensure that we recycle as much as possible to be ground down into pellets and reused, providing a longer lifetime for the material. All windows and doors that are removed are brought back to our factory and taken apart and sorted ready for recycling. We recycle everything from uPVC to aluminium to glass.
All glass that is removed is sorted into individual bins to be recycled which goes on to be used to produce non-virgin glass products such as glass bottles and jars.
Any Upvc that is removed is broken down into bins and collected weekly to be recycled and reused
At the end of each month as little as 0.6% of our overall waste will go to landfill. During 2021 of the 174 tonnes of waste taken away just 2 tones was sent to landfill.
As a business we are also very happy to work alongside our clients on any joint environmental and recycling strategies. We are also able to provide individual statistics that are client specific.
