Marlow Celebrates Sustainability and Recycling as Part of Recycling Week 2017
September 27, 2017 | posted by Jon Mitchell
At Marlow Ropes we are always looking to the future with innovation, development and sustainability we are proud to have been manufacturing rope on the same premises in Hailsham (UK) for over 200 years.
As part of our company ethos and commitment to recycling and the environment we make a concerted effort to tackle the growing problem with landfill waste in the UK, starting at the source in East Sussex. We produce all rope on-site which enables us to gain full control of how much we recycle, what we recycle and where it goes.
In the past, we have supplied off-cut ropes to good causes such as local schools, animal rescue centres and textile and material reclaim companies.
We don’t only concentrate on the factory side, our office is recycle-friendly too with recycle bins placed throughout the office and a ‘think before you print’ scheme, encouraging staff to print only important documentation. Over the past year we have recycled 13 tonnes of cardboard, 6 tonnes of plastic and 6.3 tonnes of wood.
Marlow’s Production Manager, John Williams said “We recycle as much as we can and have introduced different schemes and plans to improve how much of our waste goes to landfill. We are working on reducing this even further in the next few years”.
