Change:

  • The supplier Mauser UK Ltd has informed us of a product update to some of its waste containers.
  • There are 39 product codes affected.
  • The product update is due to the implementation of the plastic packaging tax and further support to a more sustainable product offering.

Impact:

  • Mauser (Daniels brand) have now started to incorporate a minimum 40% recycled plastic content into the manufacture of their waste containers.
  • These products will continue to be available to purchase as normal, at current prices and using existing product codes.
  • Customers may start to notice in the coming weeks some slight variation in the yellow base colour of the containers and in the lid colours, with the incorporation of the recycled plastic material.
  • While existing stocks of the previous (100% virgin plastic) products deplete, customers will receive a mixture of those as well as the new design containers with 40% recycled plastic.

Next Steps:

  • Customers should continue to order Mauser products as normal and simply be aware of the slight visual colour difference they will start to see.
  • The containers continue to have the same design and safety features in every other respect that customers of Mauser products are used to.
  • See our Downloads section to view the product listing for further information on the affected product codes.
  • If you have any further questions, please contact your local NHS Supply Chain Customer Relationship Manager or Customer Services Advisor.
