Plastic is not a dirty word, and polymers can be green

 

There can be a lot of negative publicity surrounding "plastic" from time to time. Think about supermarket plastic bags, plastic waste in landfill that will last 1000's of years and also there is the enormous stew of rubbish, consisting of 80 percent plastics, weighing in at around 3.5 million tons according to oceanographers - which floats in the sea in an area where few people ever travel, in a no-man's land between San Francisco and Hawaii. It doesn't sound good for the future of plastics long term does it?

 
Think for a minute about some of the good things that plastics or more accurately, polymers can offer us. Think about the use of polymers in vehicle manufacture, which are used to make vehicles lighter and more efficient, think about the use of polymers in place of timber and helping to reduce de-forestation. Then think about the fact that a majority of polymers can be easily recycled rather than sending them to landfill and polymers are not quite as bad as they are being made out to be. Maybe it's not the fault of the designers, engineers and manufacturers for using polymers in their products and packaging, but more likely the fault lies with the rest of us for not recycling them properly when we have finished with them. It is the responsibility of all of us to recycle more, both now and even more so in the future.

 

 

Fahr Recycling Policy


Fahr Industries has been recycling 99% of all its HDPE waste material and off cuts from the very formation of the company and it is our policy to continue to recycle as much of our waste materials as possible in the future.

 

 

Send your old and/or damaged Fahr HDPE panels back to us and we will recycle them for you - FREE OF CHARGE


To help you do your bit for the environment, we are taking the initiative and offering you a service where you can send your old and/or damaged Fahr HDPE panels back to our factory and we will ensure that this HDPE is also recycled FREE OF CHARGE. All they ask is that these panels were originally supplied by Fahr and that you send them back to us stripped down to the bare panel, so all the fixings and any non-HDPE components have been removed.

 

 

Fahr recycled materials


OK, so Fahr has its own HDPE waste recycled and will help you have your old Fahr panels and products recycled responsibly, but what about the materials that Fahr supplies. Well since the end of 2009 Fahr has introduced 100% post consumer recycled (PCR) HDPE sheets and plastic timber profiles using a very high proportion PCR with the addition of a mineral to aid strength to their range. So not only can you dispose of your HDPE waste with a conscience, but now you can buy with one also.

 

Please contact the Fahr Office for more information on Densetec PCR sheet material or LumbeRock profiles and products.
