Do Glasdon use sustainable materials?

Wherever possible we design our products using recycled and recyclable materials, taking into consideration the full product lifecycle. We continually research new sustainable technologies and manufacturing processes to achieve more environmentally friendly products.

Here is a rundown of our sustainable materials;


Enviropol is manufactured predominantly from post-consumer plastics. By balancing these uncontaminated recycled waste materials, the result is a remarkably versatile product with many applications and benefits. Enviropol will not chip or rust, is easy to clean and never needs painting.


Durapol is a polymer formulated to withstand extremes of temperature and is impact-tested in our Quality Assurance Laboratory. A number of Glasdon litter bins, recycling bins and bollards are made from Durapol, in particular, the Glasdon Jubilee™ 110 Litter Bin in Black is made from 15% recycled materials.


The majority of Glasdon indoor recycling bins are made from Duratec, which is a material specially created for internal environments, containing a minimum of 30% recycled content.


Timberpol is a durable and strong substitute for wood. It is a sustainable option, made from 95% recycled and sustainably sourced raw materials. The composite is made up of 55% wood (reclaimed sawdust) and 40% polymer (post-consumer HDPE). Timberpol is made from UK-sourced recycled polymers and manufactured in the UK it is also environmentally friendly with a reduced carbon footprint. It is self-coloured and virtually maintenance-free.
