What More UK hires environmental specialist

What More UK, the Altham-based plastics manufacturer, has employed Lee Morris to help develop its environmental strategy.

In his role as works manager, Lee will draw on his background in environmental management to help the company improve its sustainability.

What More UK has long had a focus on improving its environmental credentials, and has already been nominated as a finalist in the European Plastic Recycling Awards for its Wham Upcycled range of storage boxes, which is made almost entirely from post-consumer single use plastics.

The company also produces a range of products made from post-industrial plastics, off-cuts from other products and processes like car bumpers and dashboards. The product has been so successful that they've had to start purchasing post industrial scrap plastic from other manufacturers to keep up with demand.

What More also operates a zero to landfill policy for their general waste and Lee has calculated that since December 2018, What More's progressive environmental activities have diverted 92 tonnes from landfill.
