AUBRILAM recycles its waste products

Every year, over 10,000 wood-metal products are manufactured by the AUBRILAM factory.

We are aware of the impacts that the manufacture of our products can have on the environment, and so several years ago we committed to reduce the volume of our waste and to optimise the offcuts of wood. The waste is mainly made up of wood shavings, offcuts and metal accessories which are all collected and sent for recycling.

Today, 77 % of the waste generated is recovered and sent for recycling.

40 % of the waste is wood, which is recycled into chipboard. The wood shavings are sucked up by a central suction system that is fitted onto all the woodworking machines. They are then used for horticultural or animal mulch.

As well as recycling our waste, we also have a programme to reduce the volumes of packaging, which are designed to suit the transport used to get the products safely to their destination. Aubrilam is working to ensure that all components used to protect its products during transport can eventually be recycled.
