HVC reduce landfill waste by over 40%

Business wide recycling program sees over 40% of our general waste go to recycling instead of landfill

HVC reduce landfill waste by over 40%

In line with our belief that all organisations have a responsibility to look after the environment, a couple of years ago we introduced a business wide recycling scheme aimed at reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill. This was targeted at waste from our own operations like product packaging, and also waste generated by employees in the form of drinks cans, food wrappers etc.

We're very pleased to announce that the scheme has been an immediate success. In the year 2015, out of a total of 2.79 tonnes of waste generated, 1.15 tonnes was sent to be recycled instead of going to landfill.

Clearly going from sending 100% of our waste to landfill to under 60% is a huge success, and we hope to further increase the amount of waste we send to be recycled in the coming years, with the eventual aim of ensuring nothing which can be recycled is sent to landfill.
