UK manufacturer BPI Recycled Products wins first French contract
Recycling giant bpi.recycled products is moving into a new market, with its first sacks contract in France. The UK manufacturer is to supply France's Saumur Council with its EN13592 accredited mixed-waste sacks.
The new contract is for the collection of selected waste streams including plastic bottles, metal packaging, cardboard cartons and drinks containers.
It is initially for a year and it is hoped that it will then be extended for another two years.
"We hope to build our presence in France following this first order," says BPI RP's commercial director Lorcan Mekitarian. "Bpi is able to produce a wide range of refuse sacks across a variety of applications and market sectors, adhering to required standards and accreditations."
He explains that sacks for the French market have to be EN13592 accredited. Bpi.recycled products' sacks have AFNOR (Association Francaise de Normalisation) Certification - which provides a written assurance that the product conforms to the specified requirements.
BPI RP's yellow-tinted drawstring sacks, which were launched at the ISSA Interclean exhibition in May, have text on the outside stating the different types of waste that can be put inside.
