What is your product?
Household Waste – Saved From Landfill – a first in mixed plastics film recycling and a ‘game changer’ for the black bin liner market.
How does it work?
It’s made from the previously unrecyclable part of the household waste stream. It’s a world first - and is designed and made in Britain.
Why is it needed?
a) It’s the lowest carbon footprint bin liner available today
b) It’s made from household waste – ie a long-term and sustainable recyclate feedstock and
c) it’s helping save household waste going to UK landfill
Where would it ideally be used?
It’s used as a traditional bin liner – nothing different in the performance which matches any available today.
How is it different?
As said – no other bin liner is currently manufactured from household mixed plastic film. This means that a new life or second life can now be given to all that flexible packaging that previously ended up as litter or in landfill. In other words, all the product wrappings; carrier bags; crisp packets are effectively recycled into this useful second life bin bag.
What benefits does it offer?
It’s the lowest carbon footprint bag on the market; it’s a great second life product; it’s a great awareness raiser for recycling; it’s a great usage for flexible packaging waste and it’s saving the toll on UK landfill.
No extra cost to retailers or consumers for this new bin liner but many extra environmental benefits, including many prospects for closed loop recycling: waste collected in one area can be recycled as bin liners for the same area.
What is its life span?
The lifespan is equivalent to any other bin liner on the market today.
How is it future-proofed?
UK household mixed plastics film is a much more sustainable feedstock (x 11 times in size) than, say, post use agri-film or sileage wrap. Suppliers and customers can therefore rely upon a completely sustainable film recycling future that also provides a closed loop recycling structure.
Any future applications?
Other applications, for other products made with this mixed film recyclate, will be developed and launched by CeDo over the coming two years.
Where will it be sold?
The new Household Waste – Saved from Landfill range is being sold into the UK leading supermarkets and retailers for consumers to purchase; into the waste management and local authority sectors and also into the cleaning and janitorial markets.
