Keeping in the Loop

05 November 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

BPI Recycled Products is working with Oadby and Wigston Borough Council on a closed loop recycling scheme.

The operation is turning the Leicestershire council’s used recycling sacks into new refuse ones.

To date BPI Recycled Products has received 20 tonnes of empty recycling sacks from Oadby and Wigston Borough Council and turned them into 60,000 refuse sacks for the Council’s use.

“Everyone is talking about the circular economy and how businesses should embrace it but few companies are offering innovative options to help companies achieve it,” said Lorcan Mekitarian, Commercial Director, BPI Recycled Products. “We offer bespoke closed loop recycling schemes where we take our clients’ waste products and recycle and regenerate them into second life products such as refuse and recycling sacks, building films, outdoor furniture and landscaping products.”
