RECYCLING LANDFILL ALTERNATIVES & TRULIGHT WINDOWS MAKE LIGHT WORK OF RECYCLING


Trulight is a company based near Royston (Herts) which supplies glazing solutions including doors, windows, conservatories and rooflines, to a dedicated local customer base. Owner Warwick Raymen was concerned that his company – founded in 1993 - should take more of a proactive stance and do its bit for the environment.


Warwick organised separate skips for wood and glass and separates out PVCu frames to be collected on a casual basis by a local company. Tis meant that the remaining waste going to landfill was general installation rubbish but there still remained a significant quantity of packaging, mainly cardboard and plastic film.


Having seen information on Landfill Alternatives, Warwick contacted them and, after a site visit, they recommended a recycling baler which was installed on a trial basis to prove its suitability, along with a couple of stuff frames to help separate out the plastic film.


Te end result has been a considerable


reduction in the volume of waste going to landfill, and at the same time, taking into


account the rental of the baler, a healthy cost- saving to the company.


Te blocks generated by the baler generate


weigh roughly 50kg each and the option is either to have these collected or for Trulight to drop them off at a local recycling company on the way past.


“After the trial it proved to be a no brainer,”


said Warwick, “as it was evident that the solution was simple but effective. Te only material left to recycle is rainwater goods which seems a problem because it is dirty and low grade. We are now not only doing as much as we can for the environment but have reduced our costs substantially.”
