FENSA Recycling Schemes


Show Your Commitment to Sustainability with the FENSA Recycling Schemes


In 2023, we broadened our recycling efforts even further to encompass a full Recycling offering, meaning the extensive range of recycling schemes available to FENSA Approved Installers now includes uPVC, Aluminium, Timber and the latest addition, Glass.

The expansion has proven highly successful, and we wish to emphasise the crucial role that FENSA Recycling Schemes play within our organisation, aligning seamlessly with FENSA’s dedication to sustainability.
The newest addition to our Recycling efforts is the FENSA Glass Recycling Scheme, which is in partnership with recycling experts CNC Recycling.

The glass scheme is accessible to businesses installing windows in various locations including Hull, York, Doncaster, Lincoln, Peterborough, Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby, Wakefield, Bradford, Leeds, Huddersfield, Manchester, Liverpool, across to Halifax/Brighouse, down to Stoke and then over to North Wales, Cheshire, and areas of Cumbria.

Please note the following prerequisites for glass collection:

• The uPVC frames must be de-glazed as glass is collected separately.
• A minimum of 20 window frames/IGUs is required for a collection.
• The IGUs must be intact and stacked (A-frames) for collection.

To arrange a collection, please call CNC on 01642 983188 or email them via the button below and someone will be in touch.

The FENSA Timber Recycling Scheme operates in collaboration with Community Wood Recycling (CWR), a group of social enterprises who are committed to gathering and repurposing waste wood in an environmentally beneficial manner.

This initiative also generates employment opportunities and provides training for disadvantaged individuals. To delve deeper into the Timber scheme and how you can be involved, please get in touch with CWR via the button below.

Our free Aluminium collection service aims to inspire members to adopt more sustainable and eco-friendly practices, to protect the future of the fenestration industry. FENSA Approved Installers who arrange a collection, will even receive a commission on the aluminium collected!

In collaboration with Alutrade and in conjunction with the Council for Aluminium in Building (CAB), we offer a comprehensive fleet of collection vehicles available across England, Scotland, and Wales.
Arrange a Collection
Through our nationwide partnership with CNC Recycling, the uPVC Recycling Scheme provides FENSA Approved Installers with access to multiple collection vehicles, facilitating the recycling of all old window frames post-installation.

Visit the FENSA Installer Portal to arrange a collection of both Aluminium and uPVC materials.
