    Closed Loop Recycling

    Polythene is precious, in more ways than one. As well as being valuable, it’s also a finite resource, which means we have to be careful of how much we use it. Unless of course, we can use it again. And again. At Duo, we’ve invested in closed loop recycling. After all, if we can recycle most polythene after its first use to make it into another recyclable product, why wouldn’t we? And because there’s a shortage of waste material, we’ve made it easier than ever for our customers to reduce, reuse and recycle – by picking up your waste polythene from your premises, and paying you for it too. What’s in it for me? By using the leading technology in our closed loop system, you’re helping save money, and the planet. Reusing polythene reduces your impact on the environment and landfill. It helps create brand new recycled polythene products. Better still, it’s making the process of recycling plastics sustainable and future proof plan for an on-going solution. Benefits of Closed Loop Recycling With advantages both for you, and the planet, there’s so many reasons to choose closed loop recycling:

    • Less waste going to landfill
    • Less oil used for plastic production
    • Reduced dependence on finite resources
    • Reduction of energy consumed by two-thirds
    • Every 1t of virgin LDPE material use avoided is the equivalent embodied carbon, saving of 2.621tCO2

    How Closed Loop Recycling Works

    Waste Collection

    Just let us know when your polythene waste collection is full, and we’ll come and pick it up from your warehouse whenever is the most convenient for you.

    Graded and Sorted

    We’ll sort, grade and weigh your scrap, before moving onto the recycling stage. If you like, we’ll happily train your own staff to identify different types of plastic, so they can segregate waste themselves for maximum quality and value.

    Recycling

    After having sorted everything, we’ll take the waste bags and turn them back into their raw pellet form, which is how they began.

    Brand New Products

    These recycled pellets are then used to create completely new products, and with no waste in sight.
