Anglian Building Products is increasingly aware of its corporate social responsibilities and in particular the need for a positive approach towards waste management.
Anglian have an approved Recovinyl recycling facility which is used to process post consumer PVC-u windows, doors and rainwater goods. The waste is collected on return loads by our in-house distribution fleet. Formal Site Waste Management Plans are followed on all large projects with the focus on reducing waste sent to landfill.
Fact: Up to 14% of our windows are made ( in part) from Recycled materials
No more sending first generation PVC-u windows to landfill sites. Almost every element is utilised: the glass is used in the production of roof insulation; the first-generation PVC-u is extruded by Anglian into products such as cavity closer sections, and the reinforcement and hardware processed by a local waste management specialist partner.
With 190,000 tonnes of waste produced from the 6.8 million window units replaced annually in the industry, Anglian is leading the industry with their closed loop recycling system.
Fact: All glass from our factories is now sent for recycling
BBC News recently featured a review of the window industry, interviewing representatives from both Anglian and WRAP (the Waste & Resources Action Programme) at Anglian?s deconstruction factory.
WRAP's Materials Sector Manager for Glass, Andy Dawes comments 'The approach taken by Anglian is one we would like to see more installation companies looking at. The benefit of such a scheme works both ways, saving on escalating disposal costs and finding a new use for material that would otherwise end up in landfill.'
