Oadby & The Circular Economy


Oadby Plastics - Reduce Icon

We reduce waste across our manufacturing operations by utilising the available area of stock material for maximum production yield and minimum wastage thanks to our production planning system selecting the optimal stock material for each job.


Oadby Plastics - Reuse Icon

With any cutting and machining operation there will be offcuts of material, especially on short production runs. We collect these material offcuts and keep them for reuse in future jobs to reduce waste and demand for fresh stock material.


Oadby Plastics - Recycle Icon

We're serious about our waste streams and take a particular focus on our plastic production waste. Although our products are a far cry from single use and packaging plastics, we understand that recycling our production waste has a positive impact on the environment.

Our policy is to:

  • Wholly support and comply with, or exceed the requirements of current environmental legislation and codes of practice.
  • Minimise our waste and water usage in our buildings, vehicles and processes in order to conserve supplies, and minimise our consumption of natural resources, especially where they are non-renewable.
  • As far as possible purchase and promote products and services that minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution.
  • Where possible offer material made from up to 100% recycled materials.
  • Assess the environmental impact of any processes or products we intend to introduce in advance.
  • Review our Quality & Environmental Policy periodically with top management.
