HALVING WASTE TO LANDFILL COMITTMENT
A number of years ago as a member of FeRFA, we committed to playing our part in halving the amount of construction and packaging waste going to landfill. We pledged that we would promote the adoption and implementation of standards for good practice in reducing waste, re cycling more and increasing the use of recycled and recovered materials.
We estimated how much waste we would produce on our projects and worked with our clients and suppliers to find ways to reduce waste.
We did this by reducing waste on site through proper handling, storage and use of materials; we found more ways to recycle more waste; and recorded the waste we produced, we are pleased to say that our records now show that we have halved the amount of waste produced since 2013 from 223 tonne to 116 tonne of which over 97% is being recycled and will continue our commitment throughout 2015.
