Our main material is ideal for recycling. We are proud to be a member of ALUPRO, responsible for a number of recycling initiatives.

Recycling our Product

  • At the Nicholl Group of Companies we are proud of our environmental credentials.
  • Naturally, we fulfil our obligations under The Producer Responsibility Obligation (Packaging Waste) regulations 2007. But we go much further.
  • We actively support collection and recycling initiatives. We are also a member of ALUPRO, the Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation.
  • Aluminium, our basic material, is endlessly recyclable. Its 95% recoverability leads to the conservation of natural energy resources and means that Aluminium has low legislative compliance costs.
  • The result is that our foil is not only environmentally acceptable, but also a very competitive choice in the marketplace when set against competing raw materials.
