PVCU’s long lifespan, low maintenance, and potential for high-quality reuse make it one of the most sustainable products currently available in the building and home improvement market.
PVCU window and doors have an average lifespan of around 30-40 years. Our closed-loop, pelletised recycling process allows the same product to be recycled up to 10 times; that means a new life expectancy of 350 years from a single window or door.
Using VEKA to recycle offers a range of positive benefits for the environment. Our innovative process can give all old PVCU windows and doors a new lease of life to prevent materials from ending up in landfills unnecessarily.
We remove the barriers to recycling by making things as easy as possible for all companies to take part. All you have to do is remove the glass, and we’ll take care of the rest. From sorting gaskets, handles and other metal components to transport; we’re here to offer support every step of the way.
We know first hand that sustainability and profitability are not mutually exclusive. In fact, the opposite is true. Relegating “end of life” PVCU material to landfill sites is expensive and cuts into profit. Recycling prevents unnecessary waste which translates to greater margins, as well as being environmentally responsible— win, win.
We all want to stand out from the crowd. An increased consumer focus on sustainability means that offering solutions that are environmentally responsible can accelerate your commercial growth. It’s a compelling story to tell—95% of waste material with VEKA Recycling is recycled rather than sent to landfill or incineration.
We are now an industry leader in recycling end-of-life PVCU windows, offering a reliable, cost-effective, long-term service you can always depend on.
Turning old windows into quality new windows, our unique recycling process closes the loop on PVCU recycling.
We have just invested £10m in a new state-of-the-art recycling facility in Northamptonshire. It is set to process 28,000 tonnes of material in 2019, with the vast majority being end-of-life PVCU frames and offcuts. To find out more about VEKA Recycling, visit our dedicated website.
