Much of what is considered as waste can be reused, recycled or even composted. Unfortunately, there is still a small amount of materials which have no further economic or practical use.
We’re committed to working with our customers and suppliers in promoting waste management strategies that incorporates the waste hierarchy – involving reuse and recycle waste treatment methods, and optimum waste recovery.
