Casepak renews its vows with Rutland with three-year waste contract
UK recycling company Casepak has been awarded a three-year contract to process 3,800 tonnes per annum of Rutland County Council’s mixed recyclables after the contract was put out to tender earlier this year.
The contract began at the start of May 2017 after the competitive selection process and continues Casepak’s relationship with Rutland County Council. with the two having worked together since 2011.
Six materials, including a bioplastic composite paper, a wetsuit made from natural rubber, and packaging made from up-cycled agricultural residuals have been announced as the finalists for Bio-Based Material of the Year 2017.
‘Packaging for people, planet and profit’ is intended to ‘support businesses in considering packaging as part of the total product system for delivering products from point of production to point of consumption’.
With at least 150 million tonnes of the plastic already polluting our seas, it’s clear something must be done. They may only be a drop in the ocean, but here are some companies creating products from ocean waste.
