Bag Refurbishing and Recycling
Recycle and Reuse
There are several factors that have to be analyzed carefully to see if a program can even be put into place and whether any savings and cost reductions can be brought to the bottom line. As a company we understand that refurbishing only works when a combination of factors click. This is why we offer all types of FIBC packaging with a vast array of pricing to ensure your packaging costs are kept at the lowest possible. The majority of the time it only makes sense to recycle when you have large customers close to a recycling facility. In today’s market with low pricing of new containers and increasing freight costs trucking has become one of the biggest factors. As you will see and understand refurbishing is not for everyone and only after we study the data can we advise you on the most cost effective way forward.
Because we construct our FIBCs and PP woven small bags with 100% Polypropylene, they can be recycled into other products once they reach their life cycle. In cooperation with our customers, or with their customers (end use), we can establish collection of used bags.
