The recycling and recovery (landfill diversion) rate for 2017 across all sites showed a marginal increase compared to 2016.

This has been achieved with the support from Reconomy, our waste provider, through more site audits at our Distribution and Manufacturing facilities, local toolbox talks and utilising our waste recording portal which provides reports to help manage waste streams and costs.

Our goal to achieve a zero to landfill status in 2017 was very close with all businesses across the Group achieving over 99% of waste diverted from landfill. The levels of waste segregated on site also increased to 68%.

Our Labels division, through recycling 70 tonnes of paper-based backing product as part of their waste reduction programme, achieved the best result in the Group with 99.9% waste diverted from landfil.

Our key environmental objectives for 2018 include;

  • Continuous review and appraisals of all sites every 3 months with a view to making efficiencies
  • Explore potential benefits through the waste management division of our most recent acquisition, Nottingham Recycling Ltd, who provide the recovery of sorted materials
  • Look at the feasibility of capex expenditure in roll packers for wood waste, the latest compactors for corrugated waste and options for sawdust waste
  • Review options on plastic strapping, now classed as a general waste item
  • Provide further training on portal reports to reduce invoice queries and improve site waste management
  • Deliver savings through the Manufacturing Waste Reduction Programme
