Street scene showcases sustainable separation solutions
Cromwell Polythene will be showcasing sustainable ways to collect separate materials for recycling at its street scene-themed stand (O14) at RWM 2019, which takes place 11-12 September at the Birmingham NEC.
On the stand’s kerbside, new additions to Cromwell’s broad portfolio of products will be revealed at the show, which are designed to aid simple, separate capture and collections of materials. These launches come at a time when the government has outlined plans for a consistent set of recyclable materials to be collected from all households and businesses, including weekly food waste collections, and simplifying the process.
Visitors to the stand will be introduced to Cromwell’s extensive range of products, including compostable sacks and liners for food and garden waste made from Ecopond biodegradable resin – for which Cromwell Polythene is the UK’s sole distributor among local authorities and the recycling and waste management sector.
Also on its kerbside display are textile recycling bags and clear and colour tinted sacks made from recycled polyethylene, suitable for the collection of recyclables. The popular LowCO2t range is being expanded, now incorporating green, red, blue, and yellow sacks, which are a great visual reminder to help in the separation of different materials for recycling. This range helps to reduce both the volume of plastic and the energy used in manufacturing, and also helps to minimise greenhouse gas emissions in transportation through the supply chain.
Cromwell’s MD, James Lee, said: “There is a growing demand for responsible products, which not only meet our waste and recycling challenges, but also help combat climate change. The government’s Resources and Waste Strategy aims to increase the quantity and quality of household and business recycling and make recycling easier for householders, helping them to collect separate waste streams.
“Our street scene is designed to show that solutions are available that bring us a step closer to achieving the circular economy vision, returning resources to the production cycle and keeping those materials in use for as long as possible.”
Cromwell recently added a new resources section to its website, where visitors can view or download a range of key industry documentation or visit relevant websites for information about the benefits of plastic materials.
