The awards ceremony, which takes place on Thursday 28th June at the London Hilton on Park Lane, London, brings together professionals from all across the recycling and waste management spectrum in order to recognise and celebrate the top standards of best practice and innovation.
The Newton Membrane Recycling Service tackles an inherent problem in UK waterproofing that no other supplier has yet managed – what to do with the hundreds of tonnes of HDPE membrane off-cuts that are produced by projects across the UK each year, and consequently sent to landfill. Although such off-cuts are too small to be valid for reuse in the waterproofing industry, they are made from virgin HDPE that is perfect for recycling.
With this in mind, Newton’s recycling service collects these off-cuts from dozens of projects across the country via Newton’s nationwide network of Specialist Contractors, before back-loading it via Newton’s own vehicles when making deliveries, therefore avoiding any extra carbon emissions.
Once processed and chipped at Newton’s head office in Tonbridge, the material is collected by a third-party recycling organisation and manufactured into new construction products, therefore creating a completely closed-loop recycling process.
The results so far
In its 6 months of activity in 2017, the recycling service collected and recycled 3.255 tonnes of HDPE membrane, which can be quantified with the following measurements:
