Thanks to a three-year contract to separate recycled waste in Rotherham, UK, glassmaker Beatson Clark has announced that it will increase the use of recycled cullet in its bottles. Beatson Clark has been running a temporary service to sort Rotherham“s Blue Box recycling collection since December 2008, when the city“s contract with its existing operator was terminated. The three-year contract with the council, which starts up in July 2009, and has the possibility of a two-year extension, is subject to planning permission and an environmental permit for the site. As per the contract, the council will collect the material and transport it to the facility. In Rotherham, 111,000 households generate around 7,500 tonnes of recyclable material a year, of which 6,200 is glass. The glass will be colour-segregated and used to make new amber and flint bottles. Beatson Clark produces a wide range of amber and flint bottles for the food and drink and pharmaceutical sectors.
