It's the Law

Saying NO to packaging waste

Plastic hire crates are classified under Returnable Transit Packaging Solutions. This means that by hiring plastic crates businesses can take advantage of significant cost savings whilst simultaneously adhering to legislative requirements such as the Packaging Waste Directive.

Plastic crates can be used over and over again, making them far more versatile than single trip packaging materials such as cardboard boxes. The crates are delivered directly to your door where they can be packed and used as required.  After use we will collect and clean them, and then they are ready to be used again.

Go Green With Cube's Easycrates

Planning a move soon? The first thing that comes to mind when you think of moving are cardboard boxes! Cardboard boxes are cheap and easy to find but did you know that making cardboard is the third largest user of industrial energy on the planet? Besides, a great percentage of cardboard boxes do not reach the recycling centres and often end up in landfills. Luckily, there’s a great alternative to cardboard boxes…

Why Easycrates? Well, simply because they are so easy and convenient to use but more importantly greener for the environment.

Our plastic crate RTP solutions offer you the following advantages over single use packaging:

  • Reduction in packaging manufacture, management and disposal costs
  • Long term savings as the crates can be used multiple times
  • Causes less landfill and deforestation
  • More hygienic as can be cleansed and sterilised
  • Easily stackable for transport  and movement
  • Can be secured and traced
  • Can withstand exposure to the elements and constant handling
