Alloa brewery joins recycling initiative

ALLOA-based Williams Bros. Brewing Co has joined the OneCircle project to provide a KeyKeg collection hub for breweries in central Scotland.

The independent brewery is using space at its site to create a collection and recycling hub where breweries can send their empty KeyKegs.

Currently, 30% of a KeyKeg is made from recycled material but the aim is to make the kegs fully circular.

Scott Williams, the brewery’s founder said, “We wanted to be a part of recycling and make sure that we were doing our bit for the environment. We are KeyKeg users so becoming part of the OneCircle initiative made perfect sense. We had the space to create the collection hub and house the compactor so that crushed kegs can be sent on for recycling and reuse.”

OneCircle’s Annemieke Hartman added, “I am delighted that a renowned brewery like Williams Bros has decided to join the OneCircle initiative, helping KeyKeg users in Scotland make sure their packaging is recycled and reused.”
