Tackling plastic film waste
As this type of plastic is widely used but cannot be easily recycled, we have sought out solutions with specialist recycling partners and biotechnology companies.
All the plastic film and soft plastics that we receive are sorted into streams on our picking lines, then cleaned and baled. Most of this waste is sent to a specialist company to be turned into pellets that are then made into new plastic film products such as plastic bags. This company also combines the pellets with wood to make composite timber products for outdoor uses such as decking and cladding.
The remaining waste is fed into our XO22 biodigester along with all the black bin waste and other materials that are deemed as unrecyclable. The biodigester turns the waste into a solid fuel replacement (SFR) called FLOC. FLOC is burnt by local power stations to generate heat and energy for the homes and businesses in the South West.
