Reaching a ten year milestone working together, FloPlast and Countrystyle Recycling continue to develop their environmental credentials to current and potential customers. Plastic Building and Plumbing Systems.

The Solution

FloPlast produced a significant volume of packaging waste. Incorporating a baling press on site, cardboard and plastic waste is collected, baled and stored until a sufficient volume of material can be retrieved by Countrystyle’s dedicated fleet. With a segregation system in place, waste materials such as wood, metal and mixed recyclables are separated from general waste, increasing recycling rebates as a result. Countrystyle also collect the hazardous waste separated from general waste for onward treatment, including oily rags, filters from the on- site spray shop, paint cans and paint. As a result, this reduced the haulage bill and transportation environmental impact. Materials that were previously delivered in bags or boxes are also now being delivered in tankers.
