UK recycling company Biffa and Nestle Water have announced a partnership to accelerate a circular economy for plastic in the UK.
Biffa will help Nestle Water to achieve its goal of making Buxton bottle from 100% recycled PET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate or rPET) by collecting recyclable PET bottles and reprocessing them into rPET.
The partnership will allow Nestle Waters to reduce the amount of virgin plastic in circulation, offering a more sustainable choice for consumers and encouraging the UK to recycle more.
According to sources, Biffa has set a target to quadruplicate its plastic recycling by 2030.
Managing director for Nestle Waters UK, Michel Beneventi, said: “This is a hugely significant step forwards in achieving our commitment of making our BUXTON® range from 100% rPET. By working together, sharing expertise across our companies to advance PET recycling for circularity, I believe we can be a force for good, helping to create positive, long-lasting impact and change for the planet.”
