If your organisation is sensible about the amount of packaging waste you produce and how you dispose of it, you could save your business thousands.
All UK employers have a legal duty to manage the amount of packaging waste they produce. Producers must follow the European Commission (EC) Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste and minimise the amount of packaging where possible, and use recyclable materials where appropriate.
We can provide your organisation with efficient ways to manage your packaging waste, saving your business money and resources, whilst also aiding the environment.
What is Packaging Waste?
‘All products made of any materials of any nature to be used for the containment, protection, handling, delivery and preservation of goods from the producer to the user or consumer’, are defined as packaging under the regulations.
The main types of packaging waste material included in the regulations are:
- Other materials such as hessian, jute, cork and ceramics
We are fully committed to reducing the impact that excessive waste has on the environment. We encourage organisations that do not have waste management systems in place to get in contact with us for free advice on how you can help save your business money and resources, whilst protecting the environment.
With an efficient waste management system implemented, organisations can benefit from the perks of recycling packaging waste.
Recycling Your Packaging Waste
We offer every business a unique assessment in order to provide the best waste management facilities, personally tailored to your organisation. Depending on your requirements, we can provide your organisation with more or larger recycling bins, and more frequent collections depending on the amount of packaging waste you produce.
Wherever possible, we aim to recycle your packaging waste. Waste will be separated and reprocessed at a specialist recycling plant. In the event that your packaging waste is formed from a material which under the law cannot be recycled, we will dispose of it in the appropriate manner.
Approximately 10 million tonnes of packaging waste is disposed of in the UK every year. You can help save the environment and save money at the same time if you recycle your packaging waste.
