Amarin Rubber & Plastics boosts its recycling by helping charity scrapstore

For a number of years Amarin Rubber & Plastics has tried to find a way to decrease its landfill waste. A lot of the materials used in the company’s manufacturing processes are not widely recycled and so the company were forced to think outside the box.

Enter local charity organisation Community Scrapstore. The charity provides materials and resources for all sorts of projects, from den-building to making fancy dress costumes. It mainly works with low-income familiies and children’s groups.

Amarin, which is based in Weston-super-Mare, makes a wide range of materials available to the scrapstore throughout the year and the charity has been extremely grateful for the donations.

Sales Manager, Alex Howells, said: “We are always looking for ways to reduce our waste and being able to do so and help an amazing local charity is a great win-win situation.”

Amarin is a market leader in the manufacture and supply of a comprehensive range of quality rubber and plastic products, offering unparalleled technical expertise and service to industry.
