Recycling is an excellent way of reducing costs, saving energy and conserving the enviroment.
The cost of land-filling 1 tonne of waste is currently between £60 and £70 per tonne and is set to rise significantly in coming years. Recycling diverts waste from landfill dramatically reducing costs. Recycling enables businesses to retrieve value from waste materials. The current value of cardboards and plastics provide real opportunities for companies to turn a cost into a revenue.
Landfill is a major source of Methane gas which is 20 times more damaging to the environment than Carbon Dioxide. We can save energy by using recycled products in the production of new materials such as cardboard, glass and plastic. This process is much less energy intensive than the use of virgin raw materials. Recycling protects the environment by reducing our dependence on natural resources.
It is no longer an option for businesses to ignore their environmental responsibilities. Improving eco-credentials can certainly benefit the profile of corporate and consumer brands, but increasing pressure from stakeholders and government legislation along with rapidly rising costs means there has never been a better time to look at how your business manages its environmental processes.
