Cromwell raises recycling capability

In the UK, Cromwell Polythene’s recycling division has moved to larger premises, doubling the size of the existing facility and substantially increasing its growth potential. The move follows last year’s relocation of the company’s head office and warehouse complex to the same industrial park in Sherburn-in-Elmet, near Leeds.

The new facility, where plastics, board and other materials are sorted, graded and baled before processing, is in addition to more than half an acre of outside storage and allows for continued expansion of the division.

“The relocation of our recycling business to much bigger premises is a major vote of confidence in its continued growth,” says Cromwell’s CEO James Lee. “Last year alone saw a 40% increase in tonnage and we’ve every confidence that we can sustain that growth in the recovery of post-industrial packaging, which serves as the raw material in the manufacture of new recycling sacks and other products.”

Cromwell’s recycling division works with some 200 companies in industries as diverse as agriculture, food, pharmaceuticals, waste management and logistics. Used PE such as palletwrap, garment covers, sacks, and film is recovered, alongside hard plastics, including pallets, food trays, buckets and tubs.
