Here at Andy Glass Windows we segregate our glazing waste and have it collected and sent for a recycling process.
Our annual recycling figures are published here:
It’s often believed that uPVC windows are not environmentally friendly.
In fact, the case can be argued for quite the opposite.
uPVC windows can be made from 100% lead-free materials, better for both family living and for the environment.
uPVC windows use less energy to produce in the factory, in comparison to both aluminium and timber windows.
The ongoing energy savings are higher, with more uPVC windows achieving BFRC ‘A’ ratings than other materials.
A uPVC window is 100% recyclable and can be recycled up to 10 times, giving each window an estimated life span of 350 years – far more eco-friendly than depleting timber sources.
