Retailers inspired to recycle at the Harrogate Show
In its fourth year of exhibiting at the Harrogate Flooring Show in September, Carpet Recycling UK’s presence yielded excellent outcomes for both retailer delegates and the association.
Harrogate Show BannersA CRUK hosted seminar covering the growth in recycling opportunities and benefits for retailers saw record breaking attendance. Presentations by CRUK Project Manager Jane Gardner and Lee Bridge, National Account Manager at Anglo Recycling highlighted manufacturers’ take back schemes and the increase in demand for clean post-installation offcuts for recycling into products such as underlay and insulation.
Commenting after the show, CRUK Director Laurance Bird said: “Year on year interest from retailers has been increasing as they recognise the real business and customer service enhancements delivered by recycling carpet.”
Retailer members also benefited directly as Laurance explained: “Having grown recycling networks we can now offer more recycling opportunities and at the show several retailers realised that they could get their offcuts recycled using reverse logistics with CRUK member Anglo Recycling, raising recycling volumes.”
