Paper AF Wipes Recycle them along the normal paper recycling routes – our cleaners are water based cleaners and so when the wipes are cleaned in the recycling process any residues should be water soluble.
Plastic AF Tubs, Pump Spray Bottles, Flat pack envelopes, caps Remove the top, containers must be thoroughly rinsed before recycling. These containers should be recyclable where facilities exist, most local councils collect HDPE and there are many HDPE recycling banks across the UK.
Customers must check with their local council/local recycling bank if HDPE is acceptable in their local plastics collection.
Aerosols – Aluminum / Tin Plate   Both aluminium and tin plate steel can be recycled. 75% of local authorities will accept aerosols in their local steel recycling banks.
Remember: DO NOT PIERCE THEM OR SQUASH THEM and only put EMPTY AEROSOLS in the collection schemes. It helps if you can remove any plastic parts that come off easily, such as lids.

The AF formulations are developed for specific cleaning needs but always with ultimate disposal in mind. With a large research and development department, AF aims to provide high quality products that have excellent cleaning performance to help increase the lifespan of equipment and keep the workplace free from dirt and bacteria.

With operation safety being paramount, non-flammable materials are used throughout the range where possible and in line with AF’s environmental policy. Also wherever we are able the packaging material is recyclable and environmentally friendly.
