Recycling Lives proves it is committed to a reduced carbon footprint

COMMERCIAL recycler and social welfare charity, Recycling Lives has once again proved it is serious about reducing its carbon footprint.

Recycling Lives has teamed up with its Corporate Partner Allied LED Lighting to replace its inefficient high bay units for special energy saving LED High Bay lights.

The special lights known for their waterproof qualities, natural lighting levels and 50,000 hour lamp life have been fitted in the company’s headquarters and in the Non-Ferrous Bailer at the Recycling Lives Recycling Park, on Longridge Road.

Benn Timbury, Director of Allied Lighting said: “When Recycling Lives came to us looking for a solution for their recycling park we instantly knew LED lighting would solve all their problems. The building where the Non-Ferrous bailer is housed is partly open to the elements so a minimum rating of IP65 is imperative (weather proof). This machine can be hazardous to operate in bad light, so the long life and natural powerful light output will really make a difference especially in winter.”

These simple changes will create an annual saving of 10.052 KWH of electricity, 8.74 Tonnes of CO2 and more than £1,605 per year.
Recycling Lives Carbon Reduction Department Manager Steve Lauri said: “These new modifications show how committed Recycling Lives is to reducing its Carbon Footprint. It really is impressive to see how small changes like this can reduce your carbon output and save you money, with very little effort.
