Agri.Cycle along with the Clay Pigeon Company (Laporte) have managed to double the amount of spent shotgun cartridges recycled in the UK. In a combined effort 16million cartridges were turned into other plastic products produced by Agri.Cycle in 2015.
One of the main waste costs of any clay pigeon shooting ground is the spent shells left by shooters however this can now be reduced and the resource reused. Shooting grounds using Laporte clays from the Clay Pigeon Company can now return their used cartridges when the new delivery of clay pigeons is made for a nominal transport cost saving the ground money on skip and landfill charges.
Once the spent cartridges are returned to the Lincolnshire based Agri.Cycle 100% of the cartridge waste is recycled along with other plastic farm and industrial plastic collected. The waste is then turned in to other products including garden furniture, water butts, flooring and other heavy duty plastic items.
