Spent shotgun cartridge processing target to be beaten

Agri.cycle are on target to beat their target of processing 100 million items by the end of August 2017.

Each year over 235 million cartridges are shot in the UK, by both game and clay shoots. Last year, Agri.cycle who are the only recycling company in the country that process spent shotgun cartridges, processed over 60 million cartridges.  At the end of last year the company overhauled the in house designed and manufactured processing line, in order to increase output and reduce operating costs. The improvements provided the company with the potential to process over one billion cartridges per year.

Robert Moore, Managing Director stated, ‘We are pleased that so many shoots are recognising the benefits of recycling, both in terms of cost and ease of removal.
