Crushing it

Wakefield-based B&P Windows has teamed up with integral blinds manufacturer Morley Glass to further reduce the business’ carbon footprint. All post-consumer glass products will be supplied to Morley Glass, to be put through an on-site glass crusher.

Since 2019, Morley Glass has been accepting post-consumer glass and IGU products for its glass crusher, which is on the Leeds site. The crushed glass is then recycled for use in numerous applications. To date, the company has reduced CO2 emissions by a staggering 135,504kg.

Ian Short, Morley Glass’ managing director, said: “We know B&P Windows has been making huge efforts to be as green as possible for years. We have worked together for around two decades and have a great working relationship, so to be able to help them to continue their efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible only strengthens our bond further.”

Justin Grafton-Holt, B&P Windows’ director, said: “We have worked with Morley Glass for years and have admired not only its product and professionalism but its activities outside of the glazing sector and its dedication to reducing the impact on the environment as much as possible. This falls perfectly in line with our longer-term vision, and it’s great to be able to team up and keep as much post-consumer waste out of the ground as possible!”

B&P Windows has made huge efforts to ensure that all post-consumer and office-based waste is recycled and that nothing goes into the ground. All their old PVC-U, timber and aluminium frames are recycled. The company also uses a dedicated skip service provided by Wakefield Council, that ensures anything that is put into the skip is taken away and processed correctly, ensuring that none of it ends up at landfill sites.

Morley Glass has recently launched the new SV+ Slider System to its wider range. To find out more, visit www.morleyglass.co.uk. Discover more about B&P Windows by visiting www.bandpwindows.co.uk.
