Keylex achieve over 90% recycling levels with B&M trade waste service
Keylex are home to a wide range of heavy and standard duty, mechanical digital and PIN locks providing solutions for commercial and residential needs.
B&M Waste services are working with Keylex to reduce waste to landfill and increase recycling levels. Reducing the amount of waste going to landfill will ultimately reduce the company’s carbon emissions. To do this B&M first need to complete a site audit to assess the current waste streams and processes in place at Keylex. After advising on what changes could be made to improve recycling rates B&M introduced more general waste bins on site. The Refuse Derived Fuel facility in Trafford Park, Manchester, is the first step in the process for general waste to avoid landfill and be recycled. At the RDF facility the waste is baled and sent to a combined heat and power plant where energy for the local area is created from the waste. Recycling general waste in this way will significantly increase recycling levels for Keylex, reduce the amount of waste going to landfill which in turn reduces the company’s carbon emissions.
Keylex are able to follow the recycling journey on bespoke environmental reports detailing exactly what waste was recycled and where and in turn what recycling level they achieved through the new methods put in place.
On the last environmental report Keylex were achieving over 90% recycling levels due to the RDF facility and the waste to energy plant.
