Recycle Bound; the world’s first recycled plastic driveway solution

Oltco recycles the equivalent of over 40 million plastic straws in driveways across the UK.

Oltco is dedicated to transforming spaces, priding itself on being synonymous with outstanding, high quality products. Renowned for its forward thinking solutions, Oltco put this to good use by creating the world’s first driveway solution made from utilising waste plastic already in circulation.

Rob Wilson, Director of Oltco Bournemouth and Oltco Southampton, has been
committed to tackling the issue of plastic waste in the local area with Oltco’s world-first Recycle Bound solution. Since launching Oltco to the area in March 2020, Rob has already played an integral role in Oltco’s Recycle Bound success story, recycling waste plastic in a number of Recycle Bound installations across Bournemouth and Southampton.

At the beginning of 2019, Oltco came up with a unique solution to help tackle the issue of plastic waste littering the globe. Now, over 18 months on, Oltco’s Recycle Bound product has already recycled the equivalent of over 40 million plastic straws and is being used not only on driveways up and down the country but also at some of the UK’s leading hotels and attractions.

Recycle Bound is made utilising waste plastic (straws, plastic drink bottles and plastic food packaging) from a plastic recycling point and each square metre of Recycle Bound consists of the equivalent of 3,000 plastic straws. Therefore, if Recycle Bound was laid on a standard 50 square metre drive, the equivalent of 150,000 plastic straws would be recycled in the process.

Oltco was inspired to develop the product after growing increasingly concerned about the devastating environmental impact plastic waste was having on the planet and has already recycled the equivalent of a staggering 40 million plastic straws. Recycle Bound has been so successful it is already winning awards including being named runner up for ‘Recycled Product of the Year’ in the National Recycling Awards.

Although mainly used on driveways, paths and patios for the domestic market, Recycle Bound has also been used on larger commercial projects.

Rob Wilson says: “Recycle Bound has been hugely successful and we are extremely grateful for all the individuals, and local companies based across Bournemouth and Southampton, who have come on board in a bid to help us tackle the global issue of plastic waste. We are proud to have already installed many Recycle Bound surfaces across both areas.”
