Kerbside collectionCromwell Polythene takes pride in its partners’ accomplishments, so was delighted to see Pembrokeshire County Council announced as ‘Best Recycler in Wales’ for the second year running.

Between April 2020 to March 2021, Pembrokeshire Council achieved a recycling rate of 73.2 per cent, surpassing Wales’ 64 per cent national target and representing a year-on-year improvement for the authority. Cllr Cris Tomos, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said he was extremely proud of Pembrokeshire’s success.

The local authority has sourced bags and sacks from Cromwell for several years. Cromwell’s commercial director, Alex Lee, stated: “We are delighted to see Pembrokeshire achieve a recycling rate of over 73 per cent this year. To have accomplished this amidst huge pressure from increased volumes of household waste and all the technical challenges presented by Covid-19 is nothing short of remarkable. Cromwell is proud to have supplied the woven PP recycling sacks that played a small but important part in this phenomenal achievement.”
