100% Recycling

A water firm has pledged to recycle 100% of the 52 tonnes of tyres it goes through every year.

Tyres from United Utilities’ fleet of 1411 vans, wagons and tankers will be closed loop recycled by Direct Tyre Management into playground floors and synthetic sports fields. The steel belt and bead wire inside the tyres is re-melted to produce, amongst other things, manhole covers.

Like United Utilities, London office supplies company Wiles Greenworld also supports a more sustainable chain. With 0% waste to landfill Wiles Greenworld is the most environmentally friendly firm within the office supplies industry and offers a free recycling service to customers in order to promote sustainable development and minimise their impact on the environment.
