Display and POS recycling


Viable recycling options

Historically, businesses have been required to dispose of their visual media waste either at landfill or converted through recovery at EFW to (energy from waste) facilities. This is because mainstream waste contractors are not able to offer viable recycling options for any type of substrate, so non-renewable routes are typically taken, which is damaging to the environment and leaves unrealised opportunity for print manufacturers.

The problem businesses face:

Visual media waste is going to landfill or waste-to-energy. This is despite most of the visual media waste, irrespective of type, actually being recyclable
Waste-to-energy and landfilling this waste is profligate and environmentally irresponsible
Mainstream waste contractors are not able to offer viable recycling options for any type of substrate
Other options have previously proven to be more costly and inefficient
The logistics of moving this waste is difficult due to the number of various types, sizes, the low weight by volume
Your customers are looking at the whole supply chain for environmentally sustainable solutions.
