Introducing 7% recycled content to hose mandrels
Bell Plastics, the producer of plastic mandrels for hose manufacturing companies, has increased internal recycling rates by installing internal recycling systems at their production plant in Poole, Dorset.
Since recycling systems were installed in 2018, Bell Plastics can now recycle a wider range of materials, including regrinding and recycling materials previously though unrecyclable. This has resulted in a significant reduction of waste being sent to landfill, incineration, and external recyclers.
The focus on minimising waste at Bell Plastics has resulted in improved monitoring systems. By closely managing the recycling of scrap materials, the production team has a more comprehensive understanding of the causes of internal waste. This knowledge is used to implement a systematic approach to scrap reduction, which improves operational efficiency.
