Newton Waterproofing aim to reduce the devastating impact of plastic pollution caused by the construction sector with innovative sustainability initiatives. The first of which is the unique Newton Membrane Recycling Service, developed in direct response to the large volumes of virgin HDPE plastic membrane wasted by the waterproofing industry each year.
The construction industry is the second largest producer of plastic waste, behind the packaging industry. An estimated 50,000 tonnes of plastic packaging waste is produced each year. This is a substantial portion of the 3.7 million tonnes of plastic believed to be sent to landfill in the UK every year.
We aim to continually expand our in-house sustainability initiatives. This includes growing our recycled eco-product range and in addition to conserving our partnership with environmental charity Surfers Against Sewage.
