F.A.Q

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®

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®

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 100% recycled materials.

Duratec™

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.

Enviroplus®

Enviroplus is manufactured from 100% recycled post-industrial plastics. It is self-coloured, extremely resistant to water, frost and most forms of corrosion, and features an integrally moulded smooth outer skin that is easy to wipe clean.

Timberpol®

Timberpol composite material is a durable and strong wood substitute formulated from recycled polypropylene and a minimum of 70% recycled hardwood sawdust. It is self-coloured and virtually maintenance-free.

FSC® certified Hardwood

Our limited range of wooden seats and benches are made from responsible FSC® certified hardwood.
