CMS Window Systems have reported that its waste recycling and re-use levels hit 100% for the financial year 2017 – 2018, helping achieve its ambitious target to completely eliminate waste being sent to landfill.
Amongst the UK’s leading PVC and aluminium window, door and curtain walling manufacturers and installers, CMS was recognised for its environmental excellence last year by winning a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
The company has redefined the way replacement window and door contracts are delivered through its ‘closed-loop’ approach, which is facilitated by its comprehensive in-house waste separation and recycling processes.
CMS’ commitment to minimising landfill waste from its inception has allowed it to reach the long term 100% goal, which comes in the midst of a trading period where production output has been at 2000 frames per week.
A continuous review and improvement of its waste collection, separation and management processes have meant CMS Window Systems has been able to divert all waste away from landfill, which also ensures all post-use windows and doors can be brought from site to be broken down and separated into seven different waste streams, including plastic, mixed metals, timber and glass before being sent away for re-processing.
David Ritchie, Chief Executive Officer at CMS Window Systems, commented: “Hitting our zero landfill target is a tremendous achievement which reflects the focus and effort of everyone in the CMS team to re-use and recycle.
“It’s a vitally important milestone in being one of the most sustainable fenestration partners in the UK market and is coupled with our strategy to minimise resource use by designing out waste at project inception.
“Waste is also minimised during manufacture and installation and our range of windows and doors are designed to help our end-customers cut their own energy consumption.”
