Sacks given second life
14 December 2015
BPI Recycled Products is working with Oadby and Wigston Borough Council on a closed loop recycling scheme whereby they turn the council’s used recycling sacks into new refuse sacks.
To date BPI Recycled Products has received 20 tonnes of empty recycling sacks from Oadby and Wigston Borough Council and turned them into 60,000 refuse sacks for the council’s use.
BPI Recycled Products' commercial director Lorcan Mekitarian said: "Everyone is talking about the circular economy and how businesses should embrace it, but few companies are offering innovative solutions to help companies achieve it. At BPI Recycled Products we offer bespoke closed loop recycling schemes where we take our clients’ waste products and recycle and regenerate them into second life products such as refuse and recycling sacks, building films, outdoor furniture and landscaping products."
