Duclo Recycling, which operates out of a 44,000 square foot warehouse in Stourton, has thus far resulted in the creation of six employment, with ambitions to increase that number to over twenty by the end of 2022 thanks to the investment made in the company.
The company has made a name for itself in the recycling industry by specialising in the recovery and recycling of plastic packaging, which helps keep materials from reaching the landfill at the end of their useful lives.
Duclo Recycling plans to recycle about 7,000 tonnes of plastic by the end of 2022 using a dry recycling facility and a wash plant, with expansion plans for next year to add another wash plant.
The goal of Duo’s operations director Dale Brimelow is to reuse and repurpose plastics whenever possible, therefore the company’s recycling programme, Duclo Recycling, will sort recyclables by kind.
Prices for recycled materials have fluctuated a lot over the past few years, and we expect that to continue. Many causes, including COVID lockdowns and the Plastic Packaging Tax, have contributed to this decline.
Constant market volatility is to be expected, underscoring the importance of developing efficient recycling methods. Now, more than ever, it is crucial to reduce the quantity of resources lost as waste throughout the recycling process because economies are moving toward a more circular structure. In this case, closed-loop is the most efficient method.
Carol Cox, who has worked in the plastics sector for over twenty-five years, has been named managing director of the new company.
Recycled plastic pellets are in high demand, but current production levels can’t keep up. As businesses work to avoid fines from the Plastic Packaging Tax and meet rising consumer demand for more sustainable packaging, this need is expected to expand.
With Duclo Recycling, manufacturers will have easier access to recycled plastic, but that’s not all we provide. We are able to collaborate with other forward-thinking businesses around the UK to increase the efficiency of their plastic packaging and decrease landfill waste. In addition to prioritising innovation and collaborations that boost the recovery of post-consumer plastic waste, we intend to build a second wash plant next year, expanding our recycling capacity even further.
