Amey welcomes the BBC’s ‘War on Plastics’ series which is another helpful initiative in encouraging householders and businesses to reduce their waste, and reuse and recycle more of the waste they create.

Plastic packaging sorted at Amey’s Waterbeach Materials Recycling Facility is sent to plants in the UK for further processing/reprocessing into new products.

All plastic recycled by Cambridgeshire and Peterborough residents is separated at our Waterbeach facility.  Some of the plastic resource is transformed into new packaging, manufactured within the county thanks to an innovative partnership with local councils, led by Cambridgeshire-based packaging manufacturer, Charpak Ltd.

The Charpak vision of developing a circular economy was inspired by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the Sky Ocean Rescue campaign.  Amey’s pledge to the programme stems from our commitment to protect the environment and create better places to live, work and travel.
