Viridor trades around 1.6 million tonnes of recycled materials each year. Their primary focus is on four commodities: glass, plastics, paper and metal. Quality control is paramount at their recycling facilities which produce a range of recycled products meeting industry standards, offering manufacturers competitive alternative feedstocks versus sourcing virgin stock.
Viridor’s materials recycling facilities supply glass to Viridor’s two dedicated glass recycling facilities in addition to direct contracts between the glass facilities and glass producers and other waste management companies. Viridor is an experienced reprocessor of recycled glass cullet and is proud to be one of only a handful of UK companies that is certificated as an ‘End of Waste’ (EoW) glass re-processor.
Viridor embraces the circular economy and actively encourages the reprocessing of recycled glass and the remanufacture of glass products.
Viridor rigorously tests outgoing cullet to meet customer requirements and Certificates of Conformity (CoCs) can be issued upon request. Product quality is also UKAS verified independently.
Viridor has completed a £1 million upgrade of its Scottish glass recycling plant and has secured a Scottish Procurement contract covering five Scottish local authorities and a total estimated annual tonnage of 10,500.
