Our business has been built on a foundation of helping our clients to improve their sustainability so naturally our business takes its own sustainability very seriously.
It is at the heart of everything we do
Through our many years of waste experience we have a deep understanding of the environment and carbon and the techniques needed to ensure we are leading the way. Social responsibilities also play a vital role and the importance of working with and in our local communities. Being part of the Reconomy Group, we are able to work alongside them to support with the delivery of their Group Sustainability Strategy.
Take a look at some examples of what we have achieved:
Solar array at Head Office since 2009 and 100% LED lighting since 2016
Full electric or hybrid vehicles
Company car policy of full electric or hybrid vehicles for all new cars
Office charging points
Electric vehicle charging points at Eco House, powered by roof solar array
To minimise the carbon produced through customer waste vehicle movements we take into consideration when selecting contractors the distance they will be travelling to and from sites and disposal locations.
Supporting ZSL and other projects
Supporting ZSL in habitat conservation and biodiversity projects. In addition to this we installed hybrid RCV trucks, supporting us to win a National Recycling Award in 2017
Organised clean ups
