A TILE manufacturer is cutting down on its waste and boosting its eco credentials.
Brighouse-based tile manufacturer and distributor, the CP Group, sends its wasted tiles to be crushed and used as aggregate for roads.
And the company’s excess plain glass is sent for recycling.
The firm has now launched a series of recycling projects.
Recently they teamed up with Bradford Be Involved, Bradford’s business engagement programme – donating £1,500 worth of tiles and mosaics for an outdoor learning centre being built at Swain House Primary School.
Steve Fisher, HSE Manager at the CP Group, said: “Recycling and eco awareness have never been more important than in today’s tough climate, and to prevent leftover stock reaching the skip we have looked at ways of improving our waste management procedures while supporting the local community at the same time.
“The latest project with Bradford Be Involved is very much an extension of our commitment to work closely with other local businesses and proves that with a little forward planning, being green doesn’t have to be a huge challenge.
“By working together with other like-minded people we can all work towards a better economic landscape for the region.”
Founded in 1983, the CP Group is now the largest tile distributor in the UK, supplying wall and floor tiles to the retail and specification markets throughout the UK. The business employs over 150 staff, operating from its head office in Armytage Road Industrial Estate, Brighouse.
