Crushed After Recycling Relationship Blooms

Morley's an on-site glass crusher

B&P Windows has said that it will take all its post-consumer glass to Morley Glass to be put through Morley's on-site glass crusher.

Since 2019, Morley Glass has been accepting post-consumer glass and IGU products for its glass crusher which sits at its Leeds site. To date, the company has reduced their CO2 emissions by 135,504kg. That crushed glass then goes back into the market via recycling and will go on to be used in numerous applications for decades to come.


Zero landfill

B&P Windows, based in Wakefield for 40 years, has made huge efforts to ensure that all post-consumer and office-based waste is recycled and that nothing goes into the ground. All old PVC-U, timber and aluminium frames are recycled and have been for a long time. The company also uses a dedicate skip service provided by Wakefield council that ensures anything that is put into the skip is taken away and processed correctly to make sure that none of it ends up at landfill sites.

This new partnership with Morley Glass is set to expand that effort further, with both companies dedicated to reducing their carbon footprint and impact on the environment as much as possible.


 “We know B&P Windows have been making huge efforts to be as green as possible for years. We have worked together for around two decades and have a great working relationship, so to be able to help them to continue their efforts to be as environmentally friendly as possible only strengthens our bond further.”

Managing director, Morley Glass



Justin Grafton-Holt, Director at B&P Windows says: “We have worked with Morley Glass for years and have admired not only its product and professionalism but its activities outside of the glazing sector and its dedication to reducing its impact on the environment as much as possible. This falls perfectly in line with our longer-term vision and it’s great to be able to team up and keep as much post-consumer waste out of the ground as possible!”
