Recycling

The demand for better methods of waste management is likely only to increase and by failing to explore any opportunity to reduce waste and introduce recycling and recovery systems, supply chain businesses will risk penalties, increased long term costs and losing competitive edge due to this lack of foresight and planning.

Tri-Pack products are manufactured from lightweight Polypropylene, a material chosen because of its recycling capabilities and because there is a strong demand for the recycled material.

At the retail point of delivery Tri-Pack products can be segregated and sold for plastics recycling or baled with conventional machinery along with general waste to give cost savings on skips, landfill tax and packaging waste levy.

Tri-Pack are currently working with leading recycling industry experts to develop a sustainable and commercially viable closed loop supply chain for our Polypropylene products which will deliver real environmental improvements and cost savings when compared to other forms of packaging material.
