What happens to my waste after my skip has been collected?

Our company is committed to the process of enhancing its environmental performance and will continually measure and monitor standards and implement improvements whilst ensuring that all personnel are trained and aware of environmental issues and the environmental impact of their activities.

We are committed to increasing the percentage of materials recovered and recycled from the incoming waste stream and reducing the amount of waste being landfilled by the company in part by raising awareness of the benefits of separation at source. We aim to maximise reuse and the amount of energy recovered from waste by minimising the use of materials and non-renewable resources.
