New granulator for recycling is a wheelie good idea.

Ancillary solutions provider, Summit Systems, has helped a manufacturer of plastic wheelie bins reduce its carbon footprint and make significant cost savings thanks to a new recycling system.

MGB Plastics, part of the One Plastics Group and producers of around a million wheelie bins per year, asked Summit Systems to identify ways to improve efficiency in its scrap recycling.

Summit Systems advised MGB Plastics to move away from using an external recycler and undertake the process onsite. By incorporating a Zerma Granulator at its main Rotherham factory, MGB Plastics was able to drastically reduce its carbon footprint, speed up processing tenfold and make savings of 300 [pounds sterling] per tonne.

"We are always looking for ways to boost productivity, enhance efficiency and cut costs, via access to the best products from around the world, backed by service, that our customers tell us, is to the highest possible quality," said Mike Jordan, Managing Director of Summit Systems.

One Plastics Group Managing Director, Mike Elms, said: "The Zerma Granulator has added an extra layer of efficiency to our operations and is supporting our sustainability goals. We found Summit Systems' advice and support to be excellent throughout the project."
