1.1.1 Initiative Detail
We have looked at our waste streams across the business in terms of Landfill and recyclable waste. Initiatives to increase quantities of recyclable waste up to now have been to;
• Install cardboard balers on all processing sites.
• Through communication with our suppliers we were able to reduce excess packaging on a range of raw material products.
• We now have more staff directly involved in waste management/recycling
• Increased our use of returnable packaging with both domestic and international customers which involves the allocation of a full time employee to manage the operation.
• Working closely with our waste contractor to minimise waste going to landfill.
