Cromwell’s Sustainable Street Scene A Success at RWM 2019

Cromwell Polythene, which supplies products for the capture and containment of materials for recycling, had a very resourceful RWM 2019 (11-12 September at Birmingham NEC). Introducing its street scene stand, it showcased ways to sustainably separate and collect materials for recycling, and revealed a number of additions to its range.

The new stand made a big impression at the show, featuring kerbside options for recycling, including bags for collecting textiles, and clear and colour tinted sacks made from recycled polythene. Compostable sacks and liners for food and garden waste made from Ecopond® biodegradable resin were also on display – for which Cromwell Polythene is the sole distributor among local authorities and the recycling and waste management sector in the UK.

New additions to its popular LowCO2t ™ range were launched at the show. These now incorporate green, red, blue, and yellow sacks , which are a great visual reminder to aid the separation of different materials for recycling. This range also helps to reduce both the volume of plastic and the energy used in manufacturing, whilst minimising greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in transportation through the supply chain.

These launches are designed to aid simple, separate collections of materials for recycling, ensuring the right product is available,

in the right place, for the right recycling application. They come at a time when the government has outlined plans for a consistent set of recyclable materials to be collected from all households and businesses. These include weekly food waste collections, and simplification of the process.

James Lee, Cromwell Polythene Managing director, said: “We’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone that visited our stand at RWM and built a relationship with us, as we continue to champion resource efficiency. The show was a great forum to unveil our new launches and showcase our extensive product range. It was also a great opportunity for our team to network and share ideas on best practice and innovations across the event, which is helping shape the future of sustainability.”
