Waste Management & Recycling Policy
It is our company policy to ensure a high level of commitment to good environmental policies throughout our business activities.
It is our intention to develop this policy by minimising the production of waste, through good purchasing practice of materials used throughout the business and reuse and recycle materials whenever practical to do so.
To help ensure we give consideration to our environment and waste management responsibilities and to assist in the minimisation of waste and the recycling of materials wherever practical, systems and procedures are implemented to encourage recycling with a view to minimising the overall levels of waste we produce.
All staff are expected to abide by the following procedures and co-operate with management in the execution of this policy.
As part of our commitment to protecting the environment and reducing waste levels, we have adopted the following specific aims:
Cultivate a work ethic with a high level of awareness of waste management, waste minimisation and a desire to recycle and reuse materials when practical.
Promote economy in the use of materials generally and in particular paper and the selection of print formats and document styles in our offices.
Encourage the use of recycled/reclaimed materials; materials form sustainable sources and those that are suitable for disposal by recycling.
Favour suppliers who actively operate according to sound environmental principles.
Minimise waste by encouraging the exchange and reuse of equipment and materials amongst departments including the warehouse.
Develop waste management strategies that include recycling procedures and schemes.
Encourage employees to promote and establish recycling schemes that are relevant to their individual activities.
