Founded in 2004 as a small Cornish family business, over the past 18 years Oltco has grown to become a nationally recognised brand which has championed innovation and sustainability within the industry. This passion for innovation culminated in 2019 when Directors Tom Stringer and Johnny Pearce developed the world’s first sustainable resin bound solution – Recycle Bound.
By combining a mixture of stone, resin and waste plastic already in circulation, Tom and Johnny were able to create a unique, sustainable solution which hadn’t yet been seen within the industry. Each square metre of Recycle Bound consists of the equivalent of 3,000 plastic straws. Oltco has recycled the equivalent of over 385 million plastic straws in outdoor transformations, highlighting the popularity of this sustainable flooring alternative. The versatility of Oltco’s Recycle Bound ensures that each project is bespoke and tailored to the client’s requirements.
With a wide range of both traditional and contemporary colour blends, a new Recycle Bound patio or driveway can match any aesthetic. Add bespoke borders, patterns or designs to your outdoor space to really make it your own.
Practically, Recycle Bound stands head and shoulders above other solutions. It is the strongest system Oltco has ever tested and as a result the solution is incredibly durable.
It is SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) compliant and features anti-slip properties for heightened safety. These benefits are packaged up to create a low maintenance, hard-wearing yet stunning outdoor surface.
Oltco won the Sustainability Warrior Award at the 2021 bfa HSBC British Franchising Awards and Recycle Bound has gone on to pick up accolades such as Runner Up at the National Recycling Awards in 2019.
Oltco is proud to have worked on a wide range of domestic outdoor spaces including, driveways, patios, pathways, pool surrounds and balconies. It also boasts an impressive commercial portfolio, having worked with visitor attractions such as the Eden Project, RHS Garden Harlow Carr as well as golf clubs, restaurants, hotels, councils and schools across the UK and Channel Islands.
