Our role in the circular economy
The circular economy plays a huge role in the Recycling industry, where the life of materials is extended for re-purpose and re-use to be entered back into the lifecycle, thus avoiding the mining of further natural resources and creation of new materials.
It's a prerogative at Recycling Lives to ensure that the quality of our recycled materials is the highest possible for further re-purpose and use, using the most sustainable and efficient processes possible.
Equally important is the holistic approach we take to streamline processes, reduce energy consumption, minimise landfill, and use innovation to continually improve and increase recovery of usable materials.
We do all of this whilst working with the justice system and sister Recycling Lives Charity, to provide work opportunities, prevent offending and re-offending, in turn giving back to local economies and communities.
We are a member of Business in the Community's Circular Economy Taskforce, working with other businesses, manufacturers and government bodies to find and implement practical solutions.
