Scottish craft brewer creates KeyKeg recycling hub

OneCircle’s Annemieke Hartman

Independent Scottish craft beer brewer Williams Bros Brewing has joined the OneCircle initiative to create a PET KeyKeg collection and recycling hub for breweries in Central Scotland.

“We wanted to be a part of recycling and make sure that we were doing our bit for the environment,” explained Scott Williams, founder of the brewery. “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.”

KeyKegs are made from 30 per cent recycled material and the ambition is to make the kegs fully circular. “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,” said OneCircle’s Annemieke Hartman.
