Cherwell’s Weee scheme Cromwell Polythene (Hall 19, Stand R61) will showcase its street scene products at this year’s RWM show, making use of adjacent exhibitor Iles Waste Systems’ litter and recycling containers to display its compostable bags to best advantage.
Refuse and recycling sacks spearhead an extensive portfolio that includes Ecopond® biodegradable, compostable bags, paper sacks, battery bags, dog waste bags, a full range of clinical waste sacks and the company’s ‘Kerby’ woven polypropylene sacks for recycling and kerbside waste.
“Our range of compostable bags made from Ecopond® biodegradable resin, for which we have sole distribution rights in England and Wales among local authorities and the waste management sector, is of particular interest to RWM visitors,” says Cromwell’s sales director Paul Fleetwood. “The bags are popular with councils running organic waste recycling schemes and have been supplied in sizes ranging from seven-litre caddy liners to large garden waste sacks.”
“Ecopond® ticks all of the boxes among those for whom biodegradability is of prime importance,” he adds. “The bags are manufactured from starch or lactide acid-based derivatives of plant sources and meet all of the stringent requirements of the European composting standard, which requires that more than 90 per cent of the plastic mass to be converted into biomass, CO2 and water, without harmful residue. Ecopond® sacks fully decompose within the normal 6-10 week composting cycle and are accredited to meet EN13432,” Fleetwood adds.
Other products for the recycling and waste management sector will also be on show, including Cromwell’s exclusive LOWCO2T™ range of refuse sacks, bin liners and similar products, which use the latest technology to produce lighter weight materials at lower cost without any loss of performance.
