Not-for-Landfill Campaign Launched Today
Wood RecyclAbility are proud to support this campaign and shall take an active part along with our partners to further reduce landfill waste. Over the last 20 years we have an established record of reducing wood waste which would otherwise end up in landfill. Our Social Enterprise truly demonstrates how wood can be reused and upcycled into products where the recycling loop continues.
The event is about North East businesses, charities and social enterprises joining forces today to show their commitment to recycling and reusing the region’s waste.
At a lunchtime event at the AECC One Stop Waste Solutions Ltd will launch their Not-for-Landfill Campaign to help further reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill sites in the North East of Scotland
Today, April 1st 2016, landfill tax increased to £84.40 per tonne, meaning disposal of general waste has never been more expensive. In the current economic climate, sound waste management has a key role to play in the reduction of operating costs as well as being environmentally responsible.
As well as supporting the Scottish Government’s own “Zero Waste” (to landfill) objectives The Not-for-Landfill campaign aims to promote and support the great work that local enterprises are doing to reuse, repair and recycle their waste and provide a local network where businesses and organisations can share their own experiences in avoiding landfill.
Companies are being asked to take the Not-for-Landfill pledge to demonstrate their commitment to recycling, reuse and reduction of waste and creating a working environment that is conducive to effective waste management.
The campaign is also supported by local organisations including Befriend a Child, Keenan Recycling, Instant Neighbour, Cyrenians and E-Reps.
