Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems, subsidiary of Zodiac Aerospace, is a world leader for civil aviation evacuation slides, slides/rafts, life rafts, life vests and helicopter emergency flotation equipment. Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems take a global approach to sustainable development throughout the facilities, which includes a commitment to reducing waste production and recycling a minimum of 80% within their sites as per corporate goal.

With this commitment to waste reduction and recycling in mind, Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems contacted Glasdon about our Recycling Containers. Nexus® 36G and Nexus® 26G were ordered for the collection of trash, mixed recyclables (single stream) and compost for the cafeteria and for collecting trash and mixed recyclables (single stream) in the production area.

These products have made a positive impact on the recycling at Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems and a further order for Nexus® 26G has been placed.

It's great to see Zodiac Aero Evacuation Systems striving to reduce their environmental impact, not just within the organization but for air transport as a whole. By encouraging recycling across their sites, this simple act, if committed to by everyone, could make a massive difference to our worlds resources.
