CNC Recycling, a nationwide PVC-U window recycling company based in the North East of England, reports a landmark year, having recycled in excess of 500,000 old PVC-U windows during 2020. Continued business growth has resulted in the recycling and processing of a record number of old windows every week.
Despite ‘huge setbacks’ during the first lockdown due to Covid-19, CNC Recycling says it has successfully adapted to change, introducing new initiatives, acquiring new customers and suppliers and investing in new vehicles, plant and machinery.
Managing director, Melanie Reid, said: “2020 has been the most challenging of years but thanks to the hard work of our incredibly committed team and the support of our customers, the business has come through this pandemic stronger than ever. We have continued to be a reliable company giving a consistent service. We are really excited for 2021.”
The company describes itself as a PVC-U recycling specialist committed to offering a sustainable alternative to landfill for old windows for the fenestration Industry. The company has successfully collected thousands of tonnes across the UK every year, saving fabricators and installers the cost of waste disposal.
This enables recycled materials to be fed back into the supply chain as a secondary raw material to produce new, recycled windows and doors. PVC-U due to its thermoplastic nature can be recycled several times before any loss of performance.
CNC Recycling’s new granulation line is set to be at full capacity during the first half of 2021 due to a swathe of new customers and plans are also in place to add to its PVC-U recycling centres around the UK.
