The problem

Foil waste is going directly to landfill even when it can be recycled or recovered

Thousands of tonnes of foil waste is landfilled in the UK annually
Mainstream waste contractors are not able to offer viable recovery options for bulky foil waste
Landfilling the waste is costly and expensive
No waste company offers a waste management solution for foil produces
Logistics of moving this waste is difficult due to economies of scale
Brand owners and supermarkets putting pressure on the supply chain and their environmental standards
