Valpak Guides Epson Telford Limited to Zero Waste to Landfill

by Valpak Limited | Oct 30, 2012
Valpak assisted Epson with the management and delivery of a large element of its zero waste achievement and has tackled materials such as metal scrap, waste electrical items and parts, pallets and office waste.

Valpak, a trusted provider of environmental solutions for UK organisations, assisted Epson with the management and delivery of a large element of its zero waste achievement and has tackled materials such as metal scrap, waste electrical items and parts, pallets and office waste. Key to the process has been:

  • a full audit of all materials entering and exiting the site
  • a clear plan to reduce, reuse and recycle materials wherever practical and cost effective
  • waste management targets
  • a communications strategy with staff and suppliers
  • close working relationship with contractors to deliver an effective and efficient service

Justin Pike, Environmental Supervisor for Epson Telford, commented:

“We are delighted to have achieved zero waste to landfill. This is just one very practical example of what Epson can do to reduce our impact on the environment. Valpak’s services have contributed to the project and have audited and approved our achievement of zero waste to landfill.”

Valpak carried out a full site audit to review waste management practices on site and then confirmed that the zero waste to landfill objective had been achieved. The work means that Epson becomes one of the first groups of companies to be awarded the new accreditation, setting the benchmark for other companies in the industry.

Duncan Simpson, Director of Sales and Marketing at Valpak, commented:

“We have been able to deliver support practically on the ground at Epson through our Recycling Services Account Manager as well as provide an independent assessment, through our Consulting Team, on the zero waste achievement.”

He added:

“Companies like to direct support and service delivery, which provides them with the data and support they need to manage zero waste goals. However, in most cases they like a third pair of eyes to approve the claim to the zero waste goal – and Valpak can do this for companies.”

Epson will be provided with a certificate to recognise the achievement, which will stand for 12 months until they are reassessed in 2013.
