Since the Packaging Waste Regulations began, Outpace have guided AkzoNobel (previously ICI Paints) through the regulations to ensure full compliance with the EA.

Over the years, Outpace have helped to reduce packaging waste costs, advise on general packaging matters and provide solutions to improve handling of packaging waste generated on site.

The Decorative Paints business of AkzoNobel has seen commercial and environmental benefits from baling and recycling its cardboard and plastic waste.


The views of our customers are important to us. Outpace are committed to high standards of customer care, service and performance. If we do well, it is always good to know and Outpace would like to thank CDTi for their kind words.
