Flexible packaging group Printpack has revealed that its two UK sites have moved to sending zero waste to landfill

The company’s two UK sites, in Bury, Lancashire and Saffron Waldon, Essex, will recycle, re-use or send to energy from waste of their waste.

Printpack’s ‘Waste to Energy’ scheme involves the waste that cannot be recycled being made in to flock material, that will then be used for burning at cement kilns.

Jack Austin, managing director of Printpack’s European division, said: “At Printpack, sustainability involves both process and product.

“Process initiatives include: use of systems to ensure high air quality standards of plant emissions, waste reduction programs like ours in the UK; reducing our landfill disposal, as well as reducing the amount of post-consumer disposal by down gauging materials, and plant energy conservations, plus many other initiatives.

“I am absolutely delighted with the UK team. These outstanding results are a testament to their dedication and hard work to constantly maintain our high sustainability standards and to always improve on our previous year’s performance.”

Steve Pizer, European packaging controller at United Biscuits, said: “We are delighted to see Printpack achieving this milestone in waste management.

“As one of our suppliers we welcome their continued contribution to our own sustainability agenda where we have already achieved zero waste to landfill from UB sites and more recently the launch of the UK’s first biscuit wrapper recycling programme”.
