WDS Group and KeyKeg are to kick-start a closed-loop recycling programme for KeyKegs for the North of England. Most plastic beverage kegs in the UK are not recycled and often end up in landﬁll. To overcome this problem, WDS Group have teamed up with OneCircle to create a circular programme which recycles the basic materials from KeyKegs turning them into new, useable KeyKegs.
The programme was launched as a pilot scheme in London and now here at WDS Group we have taken up the baton for the North. WDS Group will collect all your used KeyKegs from bars, breweries, cafes etc… and deliver them to plastic recycling specialist OneCircle, where the KeyKegs are then processed and turned back into KeyKegs.
WDS Group, a family run wholesale business and distributor in Bury, Greater Manchester, sees new opportunities with the collection of KeyKegs. Sam Evans, Sales Director: “We estimate that more than 500,000 KeyKegs end up in Manchester alone every year and it is great that we can now use them as raw materials again. It meets a huge need. Many bars and breweries have heard that we are going to process KeyKegs and have spontaneously saved them up. It is clear to them that a lot of plastic ends up in landﬁll and they want to prevent that from happening. The time has come to work together with packaging producers on closed loops, and OneCircle is leading the way.”
