Eco Accreditation for Waste Containers

ESE World plastics bins for waste and recyclables have been awarded the Blue Angel ecolabel, underlining the company’s ability to support its customers’ focus on meeting sustainability targets and pursuing environmentally-friendly policies.

The standards for Blue Angel accreditation are very strict. Containers must be made from at least 80% post-consumer recycled plastics, and the material must be certified according to EuCertPlast criteria – this means that its origin and that of the whole supply chain need to be traceable. In addition, the production site and the processes have to be certified by an independent accredited institution.

Compared to the production of virgin HDPE, recycled HDPE saves 100% crude oil, only needs a small percentage of energy use and delivers a much smaller environmental impact.

At the same time, it is essential that the use of recycled plastics does not affect the performance, quality or longevity of the containers. Significantly, all ESE Blue Angel containers fulfil the tests and requirements of the relevant national and European standards and are certifi ed in accordance with RALGZ 951/1.

ESE Blue Angel containers – available in both 2-wheel and 4-wheel versions – therefore provide an effective eco-balance solution that adds another unique feature to these products.
