New partnership in place to recycle waste artificial grass

by | 22 Jan 24 | News, Supplier News

Kent based Artificial Lawn Company has partnered with Nottingham based Let’s Recycle Artificial Grass (LRAG) to ‘improve’ sustainability of its products.

LRAG will collect and recycle all old and discarded artificial grass removed by the Lawn Company, as well as offcuts, roll ends and trimmings collected during installation.

The waste artificial grass products will then be processed and turned into an assortment of everyday urban furniture products such as park benches, flower boxes, stadium seating and edging boards.

“The longer term aim is to complete a full regeneration cycle, in which the grass waste is processed back into a recycled grass product, reducing the overall need for using virgin plastic,” says Sam Baylis, survey and sales professional for the Artificial Lawn Company.

Andrew Sampson, director of Let’s Recycle Artificial Grass adds: “It is vital that the UK artificial grass industry comes together to create more stringent standards when it comes to sustainability.”

Let’s Recycle Artificial Grass operates a nationwide collection service.
