Recycling with VEKA

We are manufacture our products using a VEKA profile, and as VEKA customers we are a part of their recycling progrmamme.

Veka were the first PVCU systems company to establish a recycling plant in Germany in 1993, and then in 2007 in the UK.

Using VEKA to recycle offers a range of positive benefits for the environment, their innovative process can give all old PVCU windows and doors a new lease of life to prevent materials from ending up in landfills unnecessarily.

VEKA Recycling accepts end-of-life PVCU frames and manufacturing offcuts from any system brand. Their newly built £10m closed-loop factory in Northamptonshire can process the material to be used for new frames and other building products.

At VEKA recycling plants, they process old windows so effectively they can make new windows of equal quality, rather than lower grade products. They recycle everything except for glass.

95% of “waste” material recovered by Veka is recycled, with around 60% going in to new windows.
