The KeyKeg compacter

Williams Bros Brewing has partnered with plastics recycler OneCircle to provide a KeyKeg recycling hub for breweries in central Scotland.

The Clackmannanshire-based company, which is one of the largest independent breweries in Scotland, has begun using the available space at its site as a collecting and recycling hub, where breweries from all over the region can send their empty KeyKegs.

Founder of the brewery, Scott Williams, said: “We wanted to be a part of recycling and make sure that we were doing our bit for the environment.

“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.”

Currently KeyKegs are made from 30% recycled material, but the goal is to increase that figure to 100%.

Williams added: “We are KeyKeg users so becoming part of the OneCircle initiative made perfect sense.”

OneCircle implements collection and recycling networks for compound thermoplastics, particularly plastic kegs. To date, it has begun successful projects in the Netherlands, France, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.
