‘Opening Up’ New Recycling Opportunites


Castle Environmental are delighted to announce the start up of a new bespoke Secure Destruction and De-Packing Plant in Ilkeston, Derbyshire. This exciting new development is the latest in a considerable investment programme being implemented at our three waste treatment sites in Ilkeston, Stoke-on-Trent and Cardiff.

Castle Environmental have a long track record of providing secure disposal services for unwanted products, and this new equipment provides additional capacity for a wide range of materials such as; toiletries, beverages, cosmetics, cleaning products, tobacco products, e-cigarettes, paints and plasterboard to name a few. The state-of-the-art technology, with adjustable configurations, means that Castle Environmental can accommodate a wide variety of solid, liquid and sludge products, both hazardous and non-hazardous, packaged in sizes as small as 3ml containers.

In order to provide complete peace of mind, we can accommodate “just-in-time” deliveries, allowing for the destruction to be witnessed in person. Further to this, the process can be covered by continuous CCTV recording and a Certificate of Destruction can be provided on request.

With recycling and landfill avoidance continuing to be an important global issue, we are pioneering a de-packaging solution that will see materials move away from conventional disposal routes and instead being recycled. A specialist Atritor Turbo Separator, separates packaging materials from products with the aid of integrated water nozzles. The introduction of water also enhances the quality of the recovered packaging prior to recycling.

In keeping with our focus on sustainability, Castle Environmental will also be limiting the amount of mains water used in the packaging washing process by using both recycled water from our treatment plant and various suitable non-hazardous liquid wastes.
