Why should you recycle?
Our aim is to encourage companies to recycle as much as they can – our method is to make it as easy as possible.
There are so many unarguable reasons for recycling PVC-U that we can’t possibly mention them all. Within this section we present a list of the main advantages your business would gain from working alongside VEKA Recycling.
VEKA Recycling offers an attractive, simple and convenient alternative to landfill. We provide an appropriate bin for your premises, into which any type of PVC-U can be thrown; old or new, complete with gaskets, handles and reinforcements but less the glass, then we simply collect it from your premises when full. To make things even easier we don’t expect you to separate the profile colours. We can provide a helpful range of further recycling information on request.
Recycling PVC-U with us is not only ethically and environmentally rewarding, it also makes good financial sense. It eliminates the substantial cost of landfill while helping you attract greater numbers of customers with a green conscience. As environmental concerns become more and more prominent in the global media, homeowners and trade customers increasingly seek out companies with enviable environmental credentials. This means that recycling with VEKA could offer you a significant sales edge over your competitors. Every piece of material needlessly thrown away comes off your profit. VEKA Recycling offers you a sustainable option for your upvc window waste and the best financial option for your business.
Considering that every PVC-U window can be recycled around ten times, there is absolutely no reason why this valuable resource should be added to our already overstretched landfill. If windows have an average lifespan of around 35 years, we have potentially 350 years-worth of good PVC material to use. Recycling PVC-U drastically cuts down depletion of the world’s valuable resources and subsequently, the eco-friendly recycled windows we produce offer local authorities, specifiers, consumers and social housing bodies an opportunity to demonstrate a positive environmental commitment. Our mission is to prevent recyclable material being lost to landfill or mixed plastics.
