Williams Bros Brewery to create KeyKeg recycling hub at Alloa Brewery

Posted On: 10 Oct 2019   |   Posted By: Scotsman

Williams Bros. Brewing Co, located in Alloa, Clackmannanshire, already provides a central hub for the bottling and packing of many of the country's craft beers, stated that it will now use the space it has available at its site to create a collection and recycling hub where breweries in the region can send their empty KeyKegs .
Currently, the brewery team say that only 30 per cent of a KeyKeg is made from recycled material but the ambition is to make the kegs fully circular and that OneCircle is a big part of meeting that goal.
The Dutch company specialises in circular economy for complex compound thermoplastics - including plastic kegs.
Scott Williams, founder of the brewery, said: “We wanted to be a part of recycling and make sure that we were doing our bit for the environment. We are KeyKeg users so becoming part of the OneCircle initiative made perfect sense.
“We had the space to create the collection hub and house the compactor so that crushed kegs can be sent on for recycling and reuse.”
