Licenced waste management

Metal, plastic (UPVC) and wood parts are separated. We have recycling boxes for metals collected on a monthly basis by a scrap metal company. We employ the R J Waste & recycling service for glass, doors and windows. Metal parts are divided into ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Aluminium is separated as valuable due to lightweight strength. UPVC is actually highly recyclable. Unrepairable broken UPVC doors & windows are collected and then shredded into smaller pieces, colour sorted and pelletised which is then used to mould new parts many times over*.

LBP recycles cardboard and plastic packaging that can be identified with a recycling symbol. We also restrict our range for locksmith work to around 8 miles which in turn limits fuel usage and reduces carbon footprint.

Sustainable lock solution

We advise high quality lock choice

If something lasts twice as long then it saves money over a longer period of time and therefore reduces waste and the energy required to recycle. Depending on location and usage we advise selection of performance locks and parts that have been well designed and manufactured with higher grade materials.
