Closed-loop recycling is a process where waste – or resources as we like to call it – is collected, recycled and then used again to make the same product it came from.\n
Nowadays there are a number of different recycling or recovery options available to keep our resources in the economy for as long as possible. Open-loop recycling or downcycling is one such method, where products and materials are turned into new products of lesser quality and reduced functionality.\n
Such open-loop recycling solutions can be the best option for many companies when it comes to diverting waste from landfill or incineration. But to achieve real longevity for our resources we need to look at tighter closed-loop solutions.","text2":"
At DS Smith, this is intrinsic to our operations. We’re more than just a recycling and waste management company, we are also part of the DS Smith group which is a leading manufacturer of corrugated packaging in Europe and make millions of products from the materials we gather.\n
Our simple business model makes us different to other waste and recycling collectors because we do not operate landfill sites – we are solely focused on recycling.\n
As a manufacturer of packaging it is natural for us to see waste as a raw material and as such our goal is the same as yours – to drive waste away from landfill and into more sustainable processes.\n
All this helps our customers achieve more in their recycling with minimal impact to the environment, while realising maximum efficiency and cost gains. And by closely collaborating with our customers we are able to develop and deploy other closed-loop management solutions for 100% of waste streams we handle."}">
