As a twenty-first century organisation you cannot be involved in recycling without a clear understanding of modern environmental responsibilities – even if your company began life back in the nineteenth century.
Wilcox collection vehicles, for instance, are renewed on a 3-year rolling schedule to ensure the fleet meets the latest Euro 5 low emissions limit. All factory machinery is fitted with soft-start, energy-efficient motors and we’ve installed eco-friendly LED lighting to reduce our energy consumption. To use energy even more efficiently, our onsite transformer house incorporates Power Factor Correction (PFC).
We are is also committed to the Sustainable Clothing Action Plan (SCAP), reporting collection volumes and resources employed in collection to further SCAP’s ambitions to improve the sustainability of clothing across its lifecycle.
Since our founding over four generations ago, our business has been to promote recycling and our determination to sponsor and support the latest environmental practices in doing so remains undiminished to this day.
