Straps are often used to keep boxes closed and to stabilise loads on pallets during transport. These straps are used only once and often end up with the residual waste, so they are typically incinerated.
In order to further reduce our residual waste stream, we have recently invested in a Sweed scrap chopper. This machine cuts polyester, polypropylene and metal straps into short pieces, which can then be easily transported to a recycler. The different materials (PET, PP and Fe) are subsequently separated and transformed into new raw materials.
By making this investment we prevent these straps from ending up with the residual waste. This is another way to reduce our CO2 emissions and to increase the circularity of our activities.
