RECYCLING WITH US

‘Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects’

Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, therefore reducing energy usage, air pollution, and water pollution.

Non-black plant pots can be recycled in your home recycling collection if your local authorities also accept plastic pots, tubs and trays. Some garden centres will also take back these plastics.

Here at West Country Grown we are currently introducing our new recyclable range of plastics.

In the future we hope to have converted all our plastics into recyclable products. However, we do need to use up our current/old stock, so they don’t get put into landfill. By 2020 we hope to have converted most of our products, and defiantly by mid-end we will be fully green!

Prior to this we have always reused our old stock plastics, therefore recycling them and preventing from going to landfill. Though, our black products are recyclable, they cannot be detected.

Asides from the plastics- our branded labels are also recyclable! At this current time the logo is not on the label, however, this will be changing! All our new label orders will have the logo- this way you can ensure you are recycling wherever possible!

Now something from you…..

Wouldn’t it be great if we could promote the fact that your plants are grown locally, within the UK, and not imported with hundreds or thousands of miles behind them?! While also recycling together, we could also reduce our Carbon Foot Print together!

Promote locally grown plants in recyclable plastics! 

 

A brief explanation of our new plastics: 

D-Tect, the ‘Detectable range’ D-Tect is a thermoform flowerpot that is well suited for horticultural automation and that can easily be recycled after usage. D-Tect is near infrared detectable (NIR) in waste processing and can thus be separated out of the waste stream for re-usage.
