At Apollo Trade Windows we have always taken our social responsibilities seriously and have over the years sponsored the local football team and supported charities including Help The Heroes and the Marie Curie Cancer Charity.
Recycling the old windows we remove is our latest social responsibility initiative: instead of putting all our old windows and doors in a skip, the contents of which would end up in a landfill site, we now recycle all the metal Crittal windows, together with the old aluminium and UPVC windows which we frequently remove.
I am told by our recycling processor that the metal is exported to Europe, mainly Portugal, and the UPVC is recycled to make low grade plastic products, eg carrier bags etc.
By this activity, we at Apollo Trade Windows feel that we are playing a small part in helping to reduce the landfill crisis. One other benefit for the community is that we also receive a little money for this scrap, all of which we donate to charity.
