F Ball & Co expands recycling scheme: Making it easier for flooring contractors to recycle empty containers

F BALL and Co says it’s made it easier for flooring contractors to do their bit for the environment by further increasing the number of locations at distributor partners across the UK where contractors can deposit empty recyclable F Ball buckets and bottles for recycling.

The expansion of the company’s scheme is a response to a positive reception from flooring contractors to the initial pilot, with bin-loads of empty containers that would have otherwise been destined for landfill being taken back for reprocessing.

F Ball has introduced recyclable packaging for several products, with much of the new packaging itself manufactured from recycled materials, including fully recyclable versions of five and 20 litre plastic bottles used for liquids, primers and tackifiers.

The number of F. Ball buckets and bottles recycling points at wholesaler partners across the UK around the UK now stands at 40 and counting.

Commenting on the scheme, F Ball sales director Darren Kenyon said: ‘As a business, we have a responsibility to strive for sustainability and limit the impact our activities have on the environment, including reducing both the resources that we consume and the waste that we produce.

‘Accordingly, the company evaluates the entire lifecycle of its products when looking for ways to be more sustainable, including the materials used to make them, manufacturing processes and how they can be recycled or disposed of responsibly following use. In line with this, we are making it as easy as possible for flooring contractors to recycle the packaging used for our products.

Following the successful launch of the programme, we have steadily increased the number of drop off points and are now achieving excellent coverage, so I encourage customers to find their nearest location and take advantage of the service.
