  • Layford upgrades recycling facility

    We have just installed our new segregated compactor recycling, which is already making a big difference to the volume of corrugated and carton recycling created. The new system separates polythene from corrugated and the material is then compacted to about one third of the volume, meaning collections can be reduced, which is both less costly and more environmentally friendly.
