Record number of recycled windows

CNC Recycling recycled more than 500,000 old PVCU windows during 2020 to achieve continued business growth, resulting in the recycling and processing of a record number of old windows every week.

Despite huge setbacks during the first lockdown due to Covid-19 CNC Recycling, a nationwide PVCU window recycling company based in the north east of England, introducing new initiatives by acquiring new customers and new suppliers, and investing in new vehicles, plant and machinery.

Managing director Melanie Reid said: “2020 has been the most challenging of years but thanks to the hard work of our incredibly committed team and the support of our customers, the business has come through this pandemic stronger than ever. We have continued to be a reliable company giving a consistent service. We are really excited for 2021”

The company offers a sustainable alternative to landfill for old windows for the fenestration industry. It has collected thousands of tonnes across the UK every year, saving fabricators and installers the cost of having to dispose as waste.

This enables recycled materials to be fed back into the supply chain as a valuable secondary raw material to produce new, recycled windows and doors. PVCU, due to its thermoplastic nature, can be recycled several times before any loss of performance.

The company continues to work on building its brand with an active and strategic approach to marketing. The new granulation line is set to be at full capacity during the first half of 2021 due to a swathe of new customers and plans are also in place to add to the several PVCU recycling centres around the UK.
