Ready to gain an environmental edge? It’s more important than ever to manage waste and recycling in the Retail – Food sector.
Cost savings can be delivered through realising the rebate potential of your materials as you move up the waste hierarchy, or avoiding overweight charges!
At SWRnewstar, we’ll help you get the basics right as we work with you to manage your waste.
Working with you.
We get out to your sites to see what’s actually happening day-to-day, engage with your teams, and facilitate change for your company.
The only way we can deliver the best solutions for you is by getting to grips with your estate and understanding it as well as you do (or at least the waste areas and recycling rates!). This way, you can be sure you have a solution that meets your needs.
Looking at your waste with fresh eyes.
Waste is a valuable resource that can be used to benefit both your business and the environment.
It may not be something you’ve considered before, especially when looking at solutions for bulk materials. Bins, balers, and backhauling can all be part of your solution.
