Recycling Post Consumer Waste

Glass Recycling

Commercial glazing specialist Profix has recently completed a project for East Durham Homes, thanks to their comprehensive environmental procedures and reputation as a great and proven contractor.

 The £600,000 contract was to supply and fit both windows and composite doors to the housing stock owned by East Durham Homes in the Chappel Hill area of Durham, working alongside key partners Kier Construction and Fabstore.

There were specific objectives with respect to the environment which included the recycling of all waste materials involved in the project including the old windows and doors which were recycled at the Profix factory. It was also important to avoid any waste disposal in landfill or in incinerators with the key aim to reduce pollution and to help conserve all natural resources. Virgin raw materials were specified for the new windows and doors.

Recycled timber from old windows and doors

When it came to the recycling of the windows and doors, the handles went for metal re-processing, glass went into a separate skip and the old timber windows and doors were placed in a dedicated skip. Woodwaste Recycling collected their skip, the contents of which were destined for clean re-usable wood, demolition timber and pallets.

“It was important both for the contract and for our own processes to meet the necessary environmental criteria of this project. We already carry out all our recycling according to the latest waste management legislation and our ISO 14001 accreditation and this project has helped further increase our efforts. We look forward to working on other more environmentally sensitive projects in the near future.”

I have had much success (and a few failures) in my working life and hopefully by sharing some of my life experiences will help generations of budding entrepreneurs to follow.” Alan Sadler
