Essential Clean-up aid for Carlisle Flood Victims

Essential Clean-up aid for Carlisle Flood Victims

Essential to any clean-up are black sacks and they are required in their 1,000s in Carlisle following the recent floods.   BPI Recycled Products has teamed up with Bunzl Cleaning and Hygiene Supplies to donate and distribute free of charge 43,000 capacity sacks to the Carlisle Floods SOS Appeal.  The sacks will be distributed to homeowners who have become victims of the recent floods.

Lorcan Mekitarian, Commercial Director, BPI Recycled Products said,

“Cumbria farmers collect more farm waste for BPI Recycled Products than any other county.  We have a very good relationship with the region and so it is only right that we show our support.  The clean-up is not a nice job and if we can make it a little easier for homeowners by supplying heavy duty sacks, to not only throw damaged items away in but also to help keep their possessions dry over the next few months, then that is the least we can do.”

The heavy duty black sacks are from the BPI Recycled Products’ Green Sack® range and available to purchase from Bunzl Cleaning and Hygiene Supplies and other national distributors.  The sacks are manufactured from 100% recycled products at UK facilities, helping to reduce waste to landfill.  The Green Sack® range not only boasts an ultra-low carbon footprint, but more importantly for the flood victims, it is super tear resistant and can hold up to the Cleaning and Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) standard 15kg.  Thanks to the use of tough farm polythene, the Green Sack® range offers up to 10 times the tear resistance of other premium brand refuse sacks. The strength comes from the UK farm waste polythene used in silage bale wrap and horticultural film which BPI Recycled Products choses for its strength.
