Pall-Ex has teamed up with waste and recycling specialists “the green house” to form Eco-Pall, a Recycling Take-back service that involves Pall-Ex members collecting cardboard and plastic wrapping materials from customers.
The scheme is being trialled by Pall-Ex Nottingham, Mini Clipper based in Leighton Buzzard, J Long & Sons based in Leeds, and CJ Express based in Hull. They will return recyclable waste to their depot, where it will be baled using specialist equipment supplied to them.
If the three-month trial is successful, the scheme will be implemented throughout the UK, with many of Pall-Ex’s 100 member companies taking part.
Adrian Russell, Pall-Ex’s managing director, said: “By collecting packaging materials, members will be solving a number of issues for their customers and have a positive impact on their environmental policies – something that should please customers and shareholders alike.”
