As a company, we are committed to keeping our negative impact on the environment to a minimum and being as sustainable as we can. It is part of our company policy to minimise waste through good purchasing practice of materials used throughout the business and reuse and recycle materials wherever is possible to do so.

 

We have therefore made a conscious decision as a company to employ a contractor that collects our waste. This company has a zero waste to landfill policy of which we are very passionate about. We segregate our waste and ensure that our plastic waste is stored separately on site for collection. Our plastic (HDPE) bottles are widely recyclable; however, it is reliant on our customers to put their waste containers in their segregated bins provided by their local authorities.

 

Cotteswold Dairy also take responsibility for the recycling of delivery containers, including trolleys, pallets and crates. Our drivers are directed to collect these items from the customer to enable us to reuse them where able.

 

Our glass milk bottles have the ability to be reused between 30 and 50 times. The bottle is brought back to the dairy, cleaned, refilled and reused. This is therefore a great alternative for those cutting down on their use of plastic packaging. Once the bottle is damaged and unable to be reused, the glass bottles are then sent to be recycled into new glass milk bottles.

 

There has been an increased demand and interest from schools to receive their milk in a cardboard carton. However, due to the plastic film coating, these are not able to be recycled. Our plastic milk thirds that we provide to schools are able to be recycled.
