Client: Mr Malindrinos
Project: 86m2 Recycle Bound Driveway
Location: Mylor Bridge, Cornwall
Oltco installed an 86m2 Recycle Bound driveway in Mylar Bridge, near Falmouth for new client, Mr Malindrinos. This was the world's first domestic resin bound installation using Recycle Bound.
Mr Malindrinos was looking to update the aesthetics of his home with a new resin bound driveway. Upon speaking to Oltco, he learnt about Recycle Bound, a resin solution made using waste plastic, created by the team. It was an easy decision for Mr Malindrinos as everything he had previously done to improve his home had been focused on being as ecologically friendly as possible.
As an avid sailor, Mr Malindrinos wants to play his part in com batting the global issue of plastic waste in the ocean having been concerned about seeing the affects first hand.
Oltco installed the Recycle Bound solution to Mr Malindrinos' home in Mylar Bridge within one day. This quick installation meant that the customer could still access the property easily and minimal disruption was caused.
Recycle Bound is an ideal solution for domestic properties and it is insoluble meaning it will not wear away with water and meets SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) regulations.
This hard-wearing solution used the equivalent of 258,000 plastic straws in its installation.
This was an incredibly important aspect of the project for Mr Malindrinos as he has been passionate about finding environmentally sustainable ways to renovate his home. His roof is currently covered in the maximum amount of solar panels which generates his electricity, and he has an air source heat pump that supplies all of his water heating. Mr Malindrinos' brand new Recycle Bound driveway perfectly complements his ecologically friendly renovations on his house.
With a 20-year guarantee, the new driveway provides peace of mind and the confidence that it will last for years to come.
"We are extremely pleased with our new Oltco Recycle Bound driveway and are delighted to be the first domestic customer in the world to use the team's new recycled plastic product.
Whilst renovating our home we have been eager to use as many environmentally friendly approaches as possible and as sailors ourselves, using Recycle Bound was an obvious choice having witnessed the devastation of plastic pollution in our marine environment.
We are really pleased with the aesthetics of our new driveway and were impressed by the craftsmanship of the Oltco team. We believe that Oltco are doing a great job in helping to tackle the issue of plastic pollution already circulating in our seas and we are proud to be part of their journey."
