OSO Environmental Limited and OSO Polymers UK has worked with thermoformed packaging specialists Leeds Vacuum Formers, to achieve its aim of recycling 100 per cent of its plastic waste.
All the polythene waste generated by Leeds Vacuum Formers (LVF) at its National Road manufacturing facility – the vast majority of which is wrapping for pallets of raw material delivered by its suppliers – is now recycled and resold by OSO. Prior to this, the waste would have gone into LVF’s general waste skip and ended its life in landfill.
Carol Cox, managing director of OSO Environmental, said “Nigel and the team at LVF are extremely forward thinking when it comes to recycling. The work they’ve done over the years has put them in an enviable position as far as the plastic packaging industry goes. Therefore, to be able to help them take the final stride to achieving their 100 per cent plastic waste recycling target is something we’re proud to have played a part in.”
The OSO Group specialises in UK reprocessing and in the plastic waste recycling of Polyethylene and other polymer-based products, such as LDPE, PET, HDPE, PP and PS. In addition, the Group works with other re-processors and manufacturers to support them with various environmental obligations, including preparations for the implementation of the plastic packaging tax in 2022.
