Focus on flats as Cromwell Polythene returns to RWM show

Stand 5Q60, NEC Birmingham, 13-15 September 2016

A key focus of the Cromwell Polythene stand (5Q60) at this year’s RWM show will be the company’s multi-trip recycling bags, tailor-made for the convenient collection and storage of dry recyclables in flats and tenement buildings.

Capable of being printed with high quality, six-colour messaging, the woven polypropylene bags are 100 percent recyclable and provide the perfect storage facility until they are decanted into communal recycling bins outside, making them extremely popular with those councils who have identified purpose-built flats or tenements as a way of boosting their recycling tonnage.

“Something like a quarter of the UK’s 27.5 million dwellings are flats and tenements, according to the last census,” says James Lee, Cromwell’s managing director. “The percentage is higher in Scotland and some other regions and rises dramatically in cities such as London, where more than half of the population lives in flats.

“The multi-trip recycling bag is one of several solutions we have provided to those local council customers who see the potential arisings from flat dwellers, whether in council estates, mansion blocks or high-rise towers, as a way of improving their recycling performance,” he adds.

Cromwell Polythene supplies a wide choice of waste management and recycling products, including plain and printed refuse and recycling sacks in a range of colours; Kerbie® kerbside recycling sacks; compostable sacks, wheeled bin liners and caddy liners; clinical waste sacks and other specialist products, all of which will be showcased at the exhibition.
