UPVC Window Recycling specialist CNC Recycling are delighted to announce that they have completed the installation of their brand new state-of-the-art recycling facility with sorting and separating equipment for the recovery of clean white and jazz (coloured) of both post-industrial and post-consumer UPVC streams using the latest technology and specialist expertise.

Installation of the Delta Cleaner, Hamos EKS electrostatic separator, CIMBRIA colour sorting equipment completes the first phase of the install with the integration of the HAMOS KWS Unit to follow in April.

This long term commitment to creating sustainable products into the future of UPVC recycling represents an overall investment by CNC Recycling in the region of £2,000,000 over the course of the last twelve months into their infrastructure of recycling old windows and doors back into the fenestration Industry.

The installation of the new plant and equipment will allow for the final processing of UPVC ready for extrusion.

The introduction of the new Hamos separators will achieve UPVC purities of 99.5% in one pass. The CIMBRIA colour sorting system which is equipped with high resolution trichromatic cameras separates colour impurities still remaining in the material, so that the UPVC is refined to the highest possible quality ready for extrusion.

Managing Director Melanie Coates said of the new plant “The investment was the next natural step in our UPVC recycling process to create a closed loop . One of the big hurdles in reuse is processing UPVC so that it can be used effectively into the extrusion of new products. Therefore we have installed a plant that can clean and refine to the highest possible standards. We are very proud of the innovative and technological system installed.”

This latest development represents the next stage across the whole facility as CNC Recycling investments over the last 12 months into additional shredding/granulation/washing and separation steps to recover ferrous, non ferrous and stainless steel from the UPVC waste streams as well as stones, glass and other impurities.

To compliment the processing/recovery arm of the company CNC has added three new tractor units and trailers to their fleet complete with Terberg truck mounted forklift trucks and over ten new smaller collection vehicles to support and ensure a first class service to all our customers nationally this brings their total fleet count to (40) vehicles.

These are all covered with a new digital paperless waste transfer note system designed specifically for CNC by My Data Crate ensuring all their suppliers are compliant with the necessary legislation.

Investment has continued into our staff which has grown to (55) with the main area of growth being collection drivers, but also in our sales team based at the new Sales office based in Goole. More customer service staff have been added to the team to ensure our customers always have a direct contact should they have a problem, need a collection or have a question they need answering.

CNC Recycling have always promoted the message that PVC-U windows are truly sustainable. Our recycling schemes and partnerships together with our nationwide network of recycling centres (14) and extensive fleet of collection vehicles, mean we offer every window fabricator and installer in the UK the ability to recycle all of their old window frames to ensure this primary resource of raw material is captured and never lost to landfill.

CNC Recycling continue to be heavily committed to recycling every piece of UPVC waste created as we look to be THE trusted and reliable partner to the fenestration industry.
