Hanson Plywood Limited
Forge Waste & Recycling is thrilled to supply a bespoke waste management service to Hanson Plywood Limited; a leading supplier of various wood-based panel products to the manufacturing and construction trades. Hanson Plywood Limited is based in Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Prior to Forge working with Hanson Plywood Limited, they had been supplied with just RORO general waste bins on site – meaning a poor deal for the environment and for their pockets. Forge initially provided an FEL for cardboard and 1100L bins for mixed plastic packaging in addition to a RORO for general waste.
Over 12 months, Hanson Plywood Limited has grown as a business, as has their commitment to recycling. To tackle the increase in waste material, further on-site separation of wood and metal has been implemented.
In March of 2017, Forge Waste & Recycling processed approximately 17 tonnes of material from Hanson Plywood, and recycled/recovered approximately 98% of that.
This high recycling figure has been achieved due to the changes made to Hanson Plywood’s waste management services. They now have the following waste containers on site:
• 35YD RORO- Wood
• 8YD FEL- Cardboard
• 8YD FEL- General Waste
• 4YD TUB- Mixed Metals
• 4x1100L Euro Bins- Plastics
Joe Walshe of Hanson Plywood (below, left) has been an advocate for change to improve the waste management system on site. For this, our Commercial Manager Chris Hale (below, right) was pleased to present the company with a Certificate Of Environmental Achievement.
Hale said, “Hanson Plywood have shown a willingness to adopt new working practises and ensure high standards of environmental responsibility”.
Joe Walshe said, “Forge Recycling have been an excellent partner in our mission to reduce our environmental impact. The implementation of their waste management service has assisted us in the certification of our Environmental Management System to ISO 14001 standard. Their transport department communicate brilliantly on collections and Chris has been very active in ensuring that we reduce the cost associated with our waste while increasing our recycling percentages.”
