Zero Waste to Landfill Certification

Our Zero Waste to Landfill Team have an unrivalled knowledge of how wastes are managed

Organisations are under increasing pressure to demonstrate environmental credentials, whilst simultaneously trying to save money. One of the best ways to do this is to ensure none of your business's waste goes to landfill. However, without this being independently certified to an industry standard, organisations can expose themselves to risk when making this claim.

Zero Waste to Landfill Certification Process

We provide an independent Zero Waste to Landfill Certification service. When implementing a Zero Waste to Landfill strategy it is not enough for you to simply ask your waste contractor for your waste not to go to landfill. You need to have a full audit trail to demonstrate that your material is being treated correctly and to prove that  none of it ends up in landfill.

Valpak provides independent certification of an organisation's Zero Waste to Landfill achievement by performing a site audit and a review of documentation. The full process is shown below:
