Label Liner Recycling Scheme CO2 Savings

As the planet continues its seemingly incessant rise in global temperatures, consumers are increasingly wanting companies to do more to minimise the environmental impact of the products they buy and use.


To minimise our own operational impact and in turn that of our customers, we have introduced a number of initiatives based around the concept of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, and one that more of our customers are really getting interested in is our Label Liner Recycling Scheme.


Launched in 2021 our scheme has already sent 57 pallets containing over 20 tonnes of uncontaminated label liner waste for recycling, with another 10 tonnes waiting to go, and whilst most people will be aware that recycling their label liner waste reduces the amount that is sent to either landfill or incineration, the majority do not know that for every 1kg of label liner waste that is recycled, it also prevents the emission of 2.28kgs of Carbon Dioxide.


This process also creates a truly circular product as the paper label liner collected through our scheme is fully recycled in a pulping plant, before being used to create new release liner and paper, which can then be returned and recycled again.
