Zero land-fill waste for Window Widgets

Window Widgets says it has diverted 42 tonnes of PVC waste from landfill in the last 12 months.

The company, which is on its second year of a zero land-fill waste policy, has also recycled 10 tonnes of cardboard, 5.2 tonnes of aluminium swarf, 21.7 tonnes of wood and 1.6 tonnes of WE’EE and metal.

Window Widgets achieved zero land-fill waste in February 2021 after a two-and-a-half-year waste management programme.

Since 2018 the company has invested in a compactor for aluminium swarf, a mill-size baler for cardboard waste, and a 50kg baler for LDPE film waste. It has also ensured that head waste and profile lengths under 1m were recycled and introduced processes to manage its recycling more efficiently.

Andy Taylor, group QSHE manager at Window Widgets, commented: “We take immense pride in the progress we’ve made since achieving zero landfill waste.

“The diversion of 42 tonnes of PVC waste from landfill reinforces our unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship and our determination to make a positive impact on the environment.

“Sustainable practices not only benefit our planet but also contribute to a more responsible and resilient business and we look forward to continuing our hard work for a more sustainable future.”
