• FALL-PAC: CREATING SAFER ENVIRONMENTS
  • A How To Guide on Recycling Our Fall-Pac Units

    18th May 2017

    At Fall-Pac we are all too aware of the need to ensure that our products are as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. The need to do everything possible to benefit our planet is constantly at the forefront of our minds. Because of this, we have created products using the most environmentally sympathetic materials and have designed a dedicated recycling programme for used and/or damaged units.

    Under normal operating conditions, our units, which are made from best quality woven polypropylene with the added benefit of UV inhibitors to give them an optimum life span, will normally last for up to five years. If, at any stage of the unit’s life, a replacement is required unit can be recycled in a manner that is both straightforward and, more importantly, environmentally friendly.

    The Advantages of Recycling Your Fall-Pac Units

    There are several genuine advantages of using our recycling service including:

    Making a positive personal contribution to the environment by reducing your business’s carbon footprint. We all have a responsibility to play a part in creating more sustainable business practices. Fall-Pac’s recycling option will help your business to achieve its sustainability targets.

    Contributing to a reduction in landfill and incinerator waste. The process of recycling means that the depletion of landfill sites is slowed and that the energy expenditure involved in incineration processes are also reduced.

    Reducing the need to manufacture new units by re-using our materials to create a recycled unit. This means that the energy usage and environmental consequences involved in producing new materials and manufacturing new products are avoided, resulting in an overall contribution to the need to enhance the sustainability of the planet.

    How to Recycle Your Fall Pac Units

    If your Fall Pac unit is damaged and in need of replacement or has come to the end of its natural life and you want to use our recycling service there are two easy alternatives.

    Our Dedicated Drop-Off Service
