Each year the UK throws away millions of hard hats. JSP recommends that users replace their hard hats every 5 years or as soon as it receives a knock. These are traditionally thrown into general recycling waste with a high probability of ending up in a landfill.
The National Hard Hat Recycling Scheme aims to change by diverting safety helmets into a dedicated waste processing facility, thereby ensuring all hard hat waste is fully recycled.
JSP fully supports this scheme as a founding member using the service for our own safety helmet recycling.
