CROMWELL POLYTHENE SECURES MAJOR COMPOSTABLES CONTRACT FOR NEW FOOD WASTE RECYCLING SCHEME

Cromwell Polythene has won a major contract to supply 7.3 million compostable kitchen caddy liners to East Lothian Council in East Scotland, which has introduced a food waste kerbside collection scheme to boost its recycling rate and comply with legislative targets.

marketplace 16.3 cromwell webBy collecting food waste separately the council is also able to send it for treatment and recover value from it, either as agricultural fertiliser or as an energy source.

Rolls of 52 Ecopond® biodegradable bags have been distributed to each of the council's 47,000 households. The rolls incorporate a yellow tag towards the end that serves as the re-order form for further supplies, which are provided by the collection crews.

The substantial order was placed via the Scotland Excel framework, one of several on which Cromwell products may be found and which helps local authorities and others aggregate their procurement demands, achieve efficiencies and cost savings across a range of products known for their reliability.

Introduction of a weekly food waste recycling service is part of a raft of changes to East Lothian's domestic waste and recycling regime, aimed at bringing the existing recycling rate of 44 per cent closer to the government's 60 per cent target.
