Landfill sites are now gearing up for their annual price increases in line with the additional £8 per tonne landfill tax, taking landfill disposal charges in some regions to well over £100 per tonne.
These increases are designed to encourage businesses to seek out alternatives to landfill for disposal of their waste and the increases have been driven up exponentially in the past few years making it even more of a priority to look at current waste disposal arrangements.
There are simple but effective ways to increase your recycling rate, which in turn will decrease your waste costs and future proof you against the spiraling cost of sending waste to landfill.
One quick fix for an office or retail environment is to install containers for dry mixed recyclable waste – paper, cans, plastics and card – which can capture on average around 80% of the waste currently going to landfill from this type of business.
By recycling more, you will also be fulfilling your company’s Corporate social Responsibility obligations and also creating good PR at the same time.
