We are committed to constantly improving our practices and reducing our impact on the environment. We continually evaluate the products we use and how we can best manage the waste we create. We have a number of recycling systems in place. These systems are instrumental in reducing our waste going to landfill.
Paper and Card
We have a company wide system where all paper and card is recycled weekly through Waste Management. All offices and work areas have recycling bins dedicated to paper and cardboard recycling. Larger commercial quantities of media offcuts and packaging cores are taken weekly.
Plastics are cleaned and recycled through our Council yellow bin and also Waste Management.
Ink and Solvents
We supply Solvent Refiners Ltd all of our waste solvent for refinement. Through maintenance processes of our printing technology, waste ink is created. This ink is collected and transferred to larger containers and kept in our dangerous goods store along with solvent soaked rags. We reduce our solvent waste through purchasing decisions of new machinery that use water based inks.
Working with HP we recycle used print heads. Latex cleaning cartridges, used ink bladders and cleaning cloths are disposed of resonsibly by Solvent Refiners. These would typically go straight to landfill in other environments.
Another big contributor to landfill has been synthetic paper. We have teamed up with our supplier Aarque who we now return all our waste off-cuts back to Yupo Japan for recycling. Any posters on this material can be returned for recycling.
Flute board / Corflute
Unfortunately corflute can no longer be recycled. We have introduced a replacement product (Event Board) which is recyclable. Send back any used portions of your job when you've finished with it and we will recycle it.
Aluminium Composite Panel
We recycle all of our ACM offcuts through Sims Pacific Metals. This is a building product that we use for signage applications. Send back any used portions of your job when you've finished with it and we will recycle it.
