Trojan Plastics is situated in the conservation area of Milnsbridge, in the small district of Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, England. Our 11 acre site is nestled in the Colne Valley, surrounded by a forest, the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and the River Colne. We not only have a strong sense of the responsibility to the surrounding area but to the environment as a whole.
At a local level we are members of the ‘Pennine Pack’ which is operated by the Green Business Network and offers advice on environmental best practises with regards to waste reduction programmes. In addition, Trojan Plastics work closely with local government and are members of the Environmental Partnership. This Partnership actively promotes local business and government to proactively deliver an ongoing carbon reduction programme. Something we are proud to be apart of.
At a national and global level, Trojan Plastics avoids, where possible, importing raw materials from half way around the world where there is often little regard for the local or national environment. The majority of the cardboard packaging used on our products is manufactured from 100% recycled board. We also ensure our timber suppliers are FSC certified, enabling us to be confident that our timber is coming from sustainable forests.
At every step of the way, we endeavour to be the greenest manufacturer. Something we are proud of, and will always work hard to achieve. Trojan is the only acrylic bath manufacturer that can separate glass fibre and resin contaminate from acrylic. This patented separation process saves approximately 2kg of land fill for every bath we manufacture as the trimmed edges can be cleaned processed and made available to third parties for recycling back into methyl methacrylate. In addition we granulate our waste high impact polystyrene on site to save third party handling.
We not only have a strong sense of the responsibility to the surrounding area but to the environment as a whole.
