Calling all waste transer stations in Yorkshire and Humberside

Yorkshire and Humberside-based waste transfer stations are being sought to handle PVC window waste and flat glass in a new initiative by Axion Recycling and Recycling Action Yorkshire (RAY).

Waste transfer stations willing to handle flat glass and PVC sought in Yorkshire and Humberside
The move follows a feasibility study funded by the Waste and Resources Action Programme into increasing recycling by small and medium sized businesses in the window replacement sector. It estimated such companies generate about 190,000 tonnes of waste a year, which mostly goes to landfill.

Participating waste transfer stations would be eligible for incentives from approved PVC recycler Recovinyl, to help cover additional costs incurred with the necessary deconstruction and segregation.

Interested waste transfer stations will have to be prepared to accept small vans dropping off removed windows as most deliveries will be from small companies.

A similar scheme in South Wales has been very successful. Project coordinator Jane Gardner said: We now want to extend this model throughout Yorkshire and Humberside, where many smaller installation companies are based, through a network of waste transfer stations and community-based bring sites to accept and sort window waste.
