Weston Aluminium believes in the need to shift to a Circular Economy. It is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and the continual use of resources.
Circular systems employ recycling, reuse remanufacturing and refurbishment to create a closed loop system, minimising the use of resource input and the creation of waste.
Until recently, our economy has been ‘linear’. This means that raw materials are used to make a product, and after its use any waste is thrown away. This has only increased our landfills and wasted valuable raw materials.
To ensure adequate resources for future generations, our economy must become circular. That means recovery and recycling all waste into useful resources in perpetuity.
It’s an all-encompassing approach to life and business where everything has value and nothing is wasted. In simple terms, it can be explained as 'make, use, remake' as opposed to 'make, use, dispose'.
The ultimate goal is to keep products and materials circulating in a high-value state of use in perpetuity.
