OUR ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL VISION FOR THE FUTURE

 

What is zero waste to landfill?

Zero waste to landfill is where no waste streams go to landfill. Instead, materials are diverted to other uses, for example:

•Cardboard goes to paper mills

•Glass goes to be re-melted

•Plastic goes to be made into new packaging

•Food waste goes to composting

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Waste which cannot be re-used or recycled is recovered via methods such as energy from waste, incineration, plasmosis and gasification.

When implementing a zero waste to landfill strategy you will need to make sure you have a full audit trail of where your material ends up satisfying yourselves that none of your waste has ended up in landfill.

 

What are the benefits?

The benefits you can achieve from implementing a zero waste to landfill strategy include:

•On-going cost savings

•Revenue generation

•Meeting legal requirements of waste regulations

•Positive PR opportunities

•Improved environmental performance

•Competitive advantage over others in your industry who aren't zero waste to
