We are all aware we can recycle cardboard boxes, plastic bottles, drinks cans… However, what about crisp packets or sweet wrappers? Or even hard hats and safety glasses?
For brands who are passionate about their environmental impact, items that are tricky to dispose of can be a real source of frustration.
Recyclability is becoming more and more established at the forefront of consumers' consciousness, so making your products more recyclable is a huge selling point. With Procycle, we are aiming to break through the barrier of what can and can't be recycled, and unlock the recyclability of your product, whatever that may be.
It goes without saying that turning your product from landfill waste into a recyclable item will enhance your environmental image, and demonstrate to your customers that you are paving the way. We know that meeting environmental targets and maintaining a responsible brand image are important to your business, and utilising Procycle’s service can help deliver on both.
A cost-effective solution
With the Extended Producer Responsibility system and the Plastic Tax in mind, we know it's important for you to find a cost effective solution to recycling your product, which is where Procycle comes in. Our tailored solution for you would ensure a transparent closed-loop process, reducing high fees and helping your business be part of the circular economy.
You would fund Procycle recycling points in locations that best serve your business - these could be at your distributors, or front-of house in branches for customers. When your product reaches the end of its life, consumers will take it to the branded recycling points, which are collected by us when full. We can even offer a service for your customers, partners or employees to order a box directly from us to recycle your product. We will recycle everything according to the bespoke recycling route created for your product.
The recycling solutions created for your product or packaging will be bespoke, and will help your customers recycle those items which are notoriously difficult. We know that a one size fits all approach doesn't work when it comes to recycling, which is why we will invest time into making sure that we craft the perfect solution for your product.
UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) have announced £20 million of funding to help the UK develop revolutionary new plastic recycling systems. This will allow new technologies to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and incineration.
