Welcome to the Guardians waste and recycling hub

This week sees the launch of the Guardians newest hub, which focuses on waste and recycling. The hub will collate news, comment, best practice and discussion relating to waste management, strategy and reduction.

The waste and recycling hub will give corporate sustainability professionals access to the latest thinking on the opportunities and challenges relating to waste and recycling from experts and practitioners in the field.

There will be a series of interactive discussions where experts will be debating the big issues around waste and responding to questions. They are also providing a set of case studies on companies leading in this space via our best practice exchange, which features all of the best entries to this year’s GSB Awards.

The launch of the hub is timely as it corresponds with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ publication of its comprehensive review of waste policy. Priorities set out in the review include Government working with industry to drive innovation in reuse and recycling of products such as metals, textile and biodegradable waste and a focus on reducing waste creation through voluntary responsibility deals aimed at hospitality industry, paper, direct mail, textiles, and construction waste. The Guardian will be looking into what these priorities mean for businesses in more detail over the coming weeks.

Many organisations are already implementing broad reaching strategies which aim to reduce their waste. Examples include Sainsbury’s which has cut packaging levels by 12 million kilograms over the past year and Waitrose which has implemented anaerobic digestion systems in half of its stores.

They will kick off with a blog from Leon Kaye looking at how companies are implementing cradle-to-cradle systems into the way they think about waste management. Also featured is a blog which explores how trade associations and industry federations are coming together to reduce marine waste. Thirdly we hear from Jos Daalhuizen, business director of DHL Envirosolutions (who are supporting the waste and recycling hub) on the business case for reducing waste.

Cawleys has always been at the forefront of recycling since the 1970’s when its first Waste Recycling Facility was constructed in Luton. Since then the site has been developed with a Zero Landfill objective and now houses a cutting edge commercial Materials Recycling Facility (MRF). This enables Cawleys to reclaim and recycle as much as possible ranging from office waste, construction waste, scrap metal, wood, card or plastic materials.

Cawleys have depots in Luton, Milton Keynes and Wellingborough meaning we can cover from London to the South Midlands including Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire, and Northamptonshire.
