Most businesses are aware that sending waste to landfill is the least favourable option on the waste hierarchy, but are you aware of the many benefits that achieving zero waste to landfill can bring to your business? Some of these benefits include:

  • Ability to demonstrate your commitment to the environment
  • Certified to a recognised standard, increasing business opportunities from environmentally aware customers
  • Improved corporate responsibility
  • Cost savings by reducing the amount you pay in landfill tax
