Working with manufacturers in Wales

Incorporating recycled materials into your products or packaging is one way to prevent waste and reduce the carbon footprint of your business, but it could also reduce your costs.  Some recycled polymers can be up to as much as 20% cheaper than their virgin equivalents.

WRAP Cymru has provided technical support to businesses to increase their use of recycled content in new and existing products manufactured in Wales.  This support has helped to:

  • establish what is feasible, practical and affordable for each business;
  • identify sources of quality materials, new suppliers and markets; and
  • develop an implementation plan and business strategy.

Please note that although technical support is not currently available, eligible manufacturers operating in Wales may wish to apply to WRAP Cymru for a capital grant to introduce or increase recycled content in their products, components or packaging.  Please visit www.wrapcymru.org.uk/grants for full details.
