Wakefield-based B&P Windows are aiming to further reduce their carbon footprint by supplying all post-consumer glass products to be put through our on-site glass crusher.
Since 2019, we’ve been accepting post-consumer glass and IGU products for our glass crusher which sits at our Leeds integral blinds’ manufacturing site. To date, we have reduced our CO2 emissions by a staggering 135,504kg. That crushed glass then goes back into the market place via recycling and will go on to be used in numerous applications for decades to come.
B&P Windows, based in Wakefield for 40 years, have made huge efforts to ensure that all post-consumer and office-based waste is recycled and that nothing goes into the ground. All their old PVCU, timber and aluminium frames are recycled and have been for a long time. The company also uses a dedicate skip service provided by Wakefield council that ensures anything that is put into the skip is taken away and processed correctly to make sure that none of it ends up at landfill sites.
This new partnership with Morley Glass is set to expand that effort further, with both companies dedicated to reducing their carbon footprint and impact on the environment as much as possible.
Ian Short, Managing Director at Morley Glass commented: “We know B&P Windows have been making huge efforts to be as green as possible for years. We have worked together for around two decades and have a great working relationship, so to be able to help them to continue their efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible only strengthens our bond further.”
Justin Grafton-Holt, Director at B&P Windows said: “We have worked with Morley Glass for years and have admired not only their product and professionalism, but their activities outside of the glazing sector and their dedication to reducing their impact on the environment as much as possible. This falls perfectly in line with our longer term vision and it’s great to be able to team up and keep as much post-consumer waste out of the ground as possible!”
