Goplasticpallets.com – The Responsible Plastic Pallet Company – has been shortlisted in the Green Business of the Year category of the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards for its pioneering plastic pallet recycling scheme, which celebrated its first year anniversary in February this year.
The winners were due to be announced on March 19.
Since launching, the scheme has helped companies from more than 20 different counties recycle more than 275 tonnes of plastic waste from their used plastic pallets and boxes.
Five of these counties alone had contributed to recycling more than 20 tonnes of plastic waste each, including Buckinghamshire, Cheshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and West Yorkshire.
Jim Hardisty, Managing Director of Goplasticpallets.com, said: “When we launched our recycling scheme, we set out with the mission of helping create more sustainable supply chains by ensuring all of the plastic pallets and boxes we supply are responsibly recycled at the end of their use.
“This first year, we feel we’ve made great strides in educating our customers about the recyclability of our products, in an effort to encourage as many customers as possible to sign up to our recycling scheme.
“To be shortlisted in the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards is a real honour, and we would like to thank our customers, and our staff, for their continued support of our recycling scheme.”
