Championing resource-efficiency and the circularity of polythene at The Manchester Cleaning Show

**Please note that the Manchester Cleaning Show is postponed until September**


We’re looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand, F20, at The Manchester Cleaning Show, which is taking place 25-26 March at Event City. Please come along and meet our friendly team who’ll be showcasing our recently extended range of products for the capture and containment of materials for recycling.

We work closely with our customers in the cleaning and janitorial sector amongst others, so that they can make informed decisions on the most appropriate products for their needs.

How we can help you be more resource efficient

There is a growing demand for responsible products, which not only meet our waste and recycling challenges, but also help combat climate change. This is also a key time in the UK as the Government sets out its Environment Bill, outlining its vision for a greener future.

We’re now pleased to be able to give our customers access to an enhanced portfolio of sustainable solutions, with an addition to the Cromwell group. This follows our acquisition of the Alfreton based manufacturing and recycling plant formerly known as Moorgreen Flexible Packaging, now Cromwell Plastics Recycling Ltd.

Our independent, family-run business specialises in the supply of high-quality products with low environmental impact, designed to help organisations be more resource efficient.  Our stand reflects this extensive product range, including sacks, bags and liners for recycling, or storage and collection of waste for treatment and/or disposal. We also offer sacks for dry recyclables; compostable sacks and liners for food and organic waste; kerbside recycling bags; reusable recycling bags; personal protective equipment; and made-to-order products.

One of our most popular options is our LowCO²t™ product range which is engineered to provide maximum performance using minimal resources. This reduces the volume of plastic used, and cuts carbon emissions during production and transportation. We are also the sole UK distributor for compostable bags made from Ecopond® biodegradable resin.

Recovering and recycling materials within the UK, for re-use

Our free, used polythene recovery service is one way that we help our customers to be more resource-efficient. It keeps valuable resources within the circular economy by returning clean polythene packaging to the production cycle. Used polythene is collected from our customers on a back-load basis, for recycling within the UK, at no additional cost to them. This saves virgin materials in line with the principles of the circular economy and reduces landfill. Benefits for customers include reduction of waste disposal costs and regular reporting of packaging returns for recycling.

As a member of the British Plastics Federation, we support WRAP’s UK Plastics Pact which has outlined an ambitious set of targets, to create a circular economy for plastics. The aim is to eliminate all avoidable plastic packaging waste and make all plastic packaging reusable, recyclable, recycled, or compostable, by 2025.

Cromwell Polythene is a founding member of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) Accreditation Scheme for Plastic Refuse Sacks, assuring buyers that ‘what’s on the box is what’s in the box’ and the dimensions and count are as indicated on the label.

We hope to see you at the show! Come and talk to us at stand F20.
