FREE waste and environmental health check

The South West’s leading independent waste management and recycling company SWM are offering a FREE waste and environmental health check to local businesses.

The health check will identify ways in which you could become more efficient in managing your waste, save money and build sustainable environmentally friendly practices. Environmental responsibility and sustainability is based on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the future, and SWM are fully committed to this.

SWM Director Shawn Akers said “We recognize the importance of sustainability because resources won’t last forever, landfill is unsustainable, waste disposal costs are prohibitive and legislation is dictating ever more challenging recycling rates”.

Protecting the environment through policies and procedures that provide safe and responsible management of waste will help minimise the impact of waste on the environment.

Shawn continued, “SWM has made it a priority to provide a zero waste to landfill offering. We have invested heavily in state-of-the-art equipment; including our Material Recycling Facility (MRF) which allows the fast and effective sorting and segregation of co-mingled waste. This means that waste which may have previously been sent to land fill is now recovered, or recycled.“

HMRC tax increases will see the tax on landfill rise to £84.40 per tonne as of 1st April, 2016 so it’s vital that business’ are geared up to reduce their waste and increase their recycling rates.

Environmental responsibility, sustainability and compliance are not just the watchwords of the moment, they are here to stay. Companies need to be aware of the cost to their business of managing waste and the ways in which those costs can be minimised to benefit both their own business and the wider local and global environments.
