The number of traditional metal beer kegs in the UK has been in steady decline over the last decade with plastic kegs now taking a growing share of the market. KeyKegs have become the most commonly used kegs in the drinks and beverages industry, with KeyKegs accounting for more than 90% of the plastic kegs in circulation.

First Mile welcomes that development, as KeyKegs are now 100% recyclable when empty and have the potential to be recycled with a zero-to-landfill outcome. Bars, pubs, restaurants and the hospitality sector still, however, face the need for a scalable recycler to manage, collect and recycle these plastic beverage kegs.

That is where First Mile – along with partner companies – can help you minimise landfill and can help your business recycle beer, cider, wine or other KeyKegs.
