Following consultation with our waste management company, we have changed our waste facilities to make it easy for everyone to recycle and to minimise the volume of waste we send to landfill.
45+ desk bins have been removed and replaced with five general waste bins and three recycling bins, and we have replaced our twelve-yard skip with three general waste and two recycling bins. Now our engineers and everyone in our office needs to think about where their waste goes.
Over the next 12 months, we expect to reduce our throw away plastic bin bags going to landfill from 11,000+ to 384 and to recycle 40% of waste from engineers and the office. We will save approximately £4k in skip charges.
