Tip – Get any landfill waste from your business sent to energy from waste incinerators #OneWorldChange
Most companies recycle their waste to some extent because of waste regulations but when all the cardboard, paper, plastic and glass has been reclaimed, what about the significant ‘other’ that is left over? Currently, most of it goes to landfill where we are running out of space and paying an increasing premium every year as a response to this.
The benefits of sending un-recyclable waste to landfill can include:
- On-going cost savings
- Revenue generation
- Meeting legal requirements of Waste Regulations
- Positive PR
- Improved environmental performance
- Competitive advantage over others in your industry who are not zero waste to landfill
