What is your product?
The newly launched Securesack range of kerbside collection sacks by Sackmaker J&HM Dickson.
How does it work?
The patent pending design does away with flap type lids, incorporating a fully closing cover into the sack which keeps recyclate securely inside even if it is knocked over.
Where would it ideally be used?
Kerbside recycling collections.
How is it different?
The design addresses a number of issues councils have to deal with when using bags for kerbside collection. It has an integrated fully closing cover, making it ideal for lightweight plastics and cans and keeping recyclate inside even if knocked over. Securesack also provides protection from the elements, keeping newspapers and cardboard dry and safeinside the bag on windy days.
What benefits does it offer?
As well as keeping materials secure and dry, the sacks stand upright for easy filling and feature a fast open and tip design to assist recycling crews.
A Securesack garden waste version is also available and it has been incorporated into the range of Seagull Proof sacks, making these even more resistant to attack from gulls, foxes and vermin.
The company offers its usual budget and premium grade versions across the range, both materials are treated to resist sunlight damage and increase longevity. Sackmaker can also incorporate all the usual extras such as recycled rubber anchor pads, extra handles, coloured fabrics and printing.
How many have you sold and where?
The product has just launched but Sackmaker reports it has so far met with a fantastic response from new and existing customers. It currently supplies over 200 UK councils with kerbside sacks. Sackmaker believes the new launch is the “future of kerbside collection sacks”.
Established in 1915, Sackmaker J&HM Dickson claims to be the oldest manufacturer of Woven PP sacks and bulk bags in the UK, while also importing top quality and value bulk quantities from approved overseas mills.
