It is great to hear about the new service our customer, Grahame Gardner are offering, not only for their customers but the environment too!
Grahame Gardner are passionate about providing quality workwear that lasts, and they like to lead by example when it comes to being environmentally conscious.
Their new, innovative Uniform Recycling service aims to reduce the amount of old uniforms being sent to landfill which helps them and their valued customers to ensure that old, obsolete garments can be transformed into something new when they reach the end of their life.
According to the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) £140 million worth, approximately 350,000 tonnes of used clothing goes to landfill in the UK every year. Many uniforms are made of plastic based textiles such as polyester which are damaging to the environment as the fibres do not disintegrate.
If someone has purchased their uniforms and workwear from Grahame Gardner, they can arrange for them to be returned so that they can be shredded, and instead of going to landfill, they are then recycled to create Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF), Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) for industrial businesses or used for mattress fillings, car roof insulation and panel linings.
They can offer various solutions to suit customer requirements depending on the volume and frequency of the uniforms being recycled. These include direct return to their warehouse, ad hoc collections, and regular monthly collections for trade account customers.
