RECOVINYL
Recovinyl is a European-based initiative aiming to increase recycling of post-consumer used PVC materials. Recovinyl is funded by the PVC industry through its vinyl 2010 initiative. Vinyl 2010 aims to make a substantial increase in PVC recycling over and above what is required by EU legislation. In the UK this project is being lead by Axion Recycling Ltd. Axion has recruited a network of recyclers able to process PVC waste. The next task has been to recruit collectors who will collect and deliver PVC waste to the network of recyclers in return for incentive payments, making this an attractive alternative to land-fill. The quantities of PVC that are recycled through the Recovinyl system are independently audited.
