Christmas Recycler of the Year winner announced.

Flame UK and Grantham based Sports Charity, inspire+  announced the winner of their Christmas Card Recycling competition on Friday. Back in December, the two companies came up with an idea to encourage local schools to recycle their Christmas cards. Over 40 schools got involved and the school that collected the heaviest weight of cards would be crowned winner.

Flame UK collected all the recyclable cards and weighed them in to determine which school would win the coveted Christmas Recycler of the Year TrophyAfter a very close run competition, the overall winner for 2018 was Uffington Church of England School in Stamford who collected 80.5kg of cards.

Pam Knight, Managing Director of Flame UK said “We were thrilled to see how many schools got involved with the competition. It was an idea that inspire+ helped us come up with and the kids really got behind it. This is definitely something we want to continue every year from now on! Congratulations to Uffington School for collecting such a large amount of cards for recycling.”

Vincent Brittain, founder of inspire+ added “When Flame UK asked us to get involved with the Christmas Card Recycling competition, of course we agreed. It’s been a great way of getting schools to learn about recycling whilst also encouraging them to work together as a team which is a key part of the programmes we offer to schools.”

Flame UK and inspire+ will be running the Christmas Card Recycling project next year so if your school in interested in getting involved, watch this space for more information.

Ever Thought about Baling your Recycling?

If you have ever thought about Baling your recyclable waste but never took the ‘plunge’ then now could be the time to make that change.

With general waste costs rising constantly, landfill tax increasing year on year and impending ‘green taxes’ looming the rise in the value of recyclable materials could just be the nudge you needed.

Cardboard prices have fluctuated greatly over the past 12 months with China and the other Asia markets declining to take the UK’s waste having a big impact on the values. But with more and more demand for recyclable products, the market is in need of good quality recyclable materials, which, maybe you can help with.

Cardboard and Plastics can be baled in a range of balers to fit every application and every budget, starting from a few pounds a week we can quickly and efficiently turn your waste into cash.

The impending Plastic Tax will see buyers of plastic packaging having to make use of minimum recycled content products, which will create in turn a bigger need for more material, so too will the revamping of the Packaging Waste Regulations where a greater target for recycling will also place more pressure on demand.

Even if you just want to see how a baler could positively assist your business’s bottom line were here to help. Our range of waste balers and equipment is vast, from smaller balers for small volumes and office space to large commercial balers capable of handling tonnes of waste per hour, we have it all.
