How We Achieved Zero Waste To Landfill

RPC bpi recycled products is the UK’s largest producer of refuse sacks, and the largest polythene recycler in Europe. Recently the firm achieved an ambitious zero waste to landfill target, accredited by Valpak. Here, the company offers some insight into how it was achieved.

RPC bpi recycled products now segregates 85% of its waste, ranging from damaged pallets to used ink rags, for reuse and recycling.  At its Stroud site, waste management has become self-funding, due to rebates earned from recyclable materials and a reduction in waste management costs.

The company’s four UK sites, in Stroud, Heanor, Rhymney and Dumfries, receive 50,000 tonnes of scrap polythene each year; these are then recycled into high performance finished goods such as refuse sacks and Plaswood lumber. The firm is one of just a few UK companies that can claim to offer a genuinely closed loop manufacturing business.
