Recycling drive to remove plastic from the tube

Plastic bottles left on London Underground’s tube network are being targeted in a recycling scheme that will see them reprocessed back into food-grade packaging material.

Plastics reprocessor Closed Loop Recycling (CLR) has partnered with waste contractor Bywaters to collect and recycle used bottles left discarded on the tube network. Bottles collected will be collected by Bywaters and taken to CLR’s Dagenham facility.

The partnership is supported by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and is a further boost for CLR, which has just experienced record throughput tonnage during the past six months – an increase of almost a quarter on the previous six months.
Wiles Greenworld, London’s green office supplies distributor that collects waste when it delivers was delighted to hear the scheme. The company has been recycling plastic bottles from its customers for a number of years and has in fact received recognition for its collections upon delivery service which recycles in excess of 30 tonnes of paper per month. To arrange your plastic recycling through Wiles Greenworld please contact 0208 758 7700.
