As the impact of waste plastics across the globe becomes an increasing concern, we are excited to announce the launch of our new driveway solution designed to play an important role in utilising plastic which is already in circulation. We are the worlds first company to offer this environmentally friendly solution for homeowners and businesses.
Our Directors Tom Stringer and Johnny Pearce, along with Oltco's in house experts, have developed Recycle Bound using over 15 years of Technical expertise and specialist skills.
In the UK alone we throw away 8.5 billion straws every year, Many of these straws are polluting our oceans, causing devastating consequences for wildlife across the globe. Our aim is to alleviate this through the Recycle Bound solution. Made from waste plastic (straws, plastic drink bottles and plastic food packaging) from a plastic recycling point, each square meter of Recycle Bound consists of 3000 plastic straws. Therefore if Recycle Bound was laid on a standard 50m2 drive, the equivalent of 150,000 plastic straws would be recycled in the process.
With our HQ based in Newquay we are aware of the detrimental impact that waste plastic is having on the environment around us in particular the beaches. Our team set about creating a unique resin bound blend using waste plastic.
"As a native of Newquay, I became increasingly concerned about the huge amount of waste plastic which is polluting the coastline of Cornwall and beyond. With Newquay being a plastic free zone the team and I are passionate about making a difference to the community and the World around us, including the natural environment, so it was important for us to try and help." - Johnny Pearce (Co Director)
Our Recycled Bound solution has a 20 year Guarantee has been thoroughly tried and tested. If a driveway needs to be replaced in the future, the Recycle Bound solution can be taken up then crushed and graded so that it can be re-laid as a base layer for a driveway. Alternatively a new driveway can be laid directly on top of it.
"We're proud to be an innovator not an imitator and as a business we've spent the last five years developing unique resin bound solutions. Through our new product-design process we decided to explore waste plastic forming part of our blends. After 24 months of intensive development and testing, we've launched Recycle Bound as a new environmentally friendly option." - Tom Stringer (Co Director)
Recycle Bound has been developed to be even stronger than other Resin solutions meaning that its Tensile strength is higher and it can hold more weight. It offers all of the same benefits as our other solutions including permeable properties, which therefore makes it SUDS compliant. In addition to this the melting point of the solution is 250 Degrees Celsius meaning that even if the UK has another heatwave, the plastic will not melt in the way that some alternatives would.
