The Green Initiative: Recycling UPVC Windows and Glass with Fairview Windows at Morley Recycle Plant

Recycling UPVC Windows and Glass with Fairview Windows

In today’s world, sustainability is more than just a buzzword—it’s a responsibility. At Fairview Windows, we are deeply committed to reducing our environmental footprint, and one significant way we achieve this is through our comprehensive recycling program. We understand the importance of managing waste responsibly, which is why we ensure that all our UPVC window frames, doors, and glass are recycled at the Morley Recycle Plant. Here’s a closer look at how we make this happen and the benefits it brings to our community and the environment.

The Journey of Your Old Windows and Doors

  • Collection and Transportation: Once our team removes the old UPVC windows, doors, and glass from your home, they are carefully transported to the Morley Recycle Plant. This process is streamlined to minimize any disruption and ensure efficiency.
  • Sorting and Preparation: At the recycling plant, the materials are sorted. UPVC frames are separated from the glass, and any additional components like handles or hinges are removed. This careful sorting ensures that each material can be recycled appropriately.
  • Recycling Process:
    • UPVC Frames and Doors: The UPVC is shredded into small pieces, which are then cleaned to remove any impurities. These shredded pieces are melted down and remolded into new products. This process not only reduces the demand for new raw materials but also saves energy compared to producing UPVC from scratch.
    • Glass: The glass is crushed and then melted down to create new glass products. This recycling process significantly reduces the need for raw materials like sand, soda ash, and limestone, thereby conserving natural resources.

Environmental and Community Benefits

Our commitment to recycling goes beyond just managing waste—it’s about creating a positive impact on the environment and our community.

  1. Reducing Landfill Waste: By recycling old windows and doors, we significantly reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills. This not only helps in conserving space but also reduces the greenhouse gases produced by decomposing materials.
  2. Conserving Natural Resources: Recycling UPVC and glass means less demand for new raw materials. This conservation of natural resources helps protect ecosystems and reduces the environmental impact associated with mining and extraction processes.
  3. Energy Savings: The recycling process consumes less energy compared to manufacturing new products from raw materials. This energy efficiency contributes to lower carbon emissions, helping to combat climate change.
  4. Supporting the Local Economy: The Morley Recycle Plant plays a vital role in our local economy by providing jobs and supporting local businesses. By partnering with them, we ensure that our recycling efforts contribute to the economic well-being of our community.
