Plastics News – UK PVC recycler using prison labor.

Prison governor Susan Kennedy said the project, part of the Working Prisons Initiative, is working well, providing an opportunity for prisoners to develop a work ethos within a realistic working environment.

“This not only adds to their resettlement opportunities but they enjoy the work, which helps time to pass quickly. It’s a very positive partnership. The prison service is keen to work with commercial partners on projects such as enterprises involved in recycling, and develop initiatives that contribute to the wider green agenda.
