Marston’s achieves ‘Zero Waste to Landfill’ goal

A zero waste to landfill initiative has helped transform Wolverhampton-based breweries and pubs group Marston’s green credentials in just 18 months.

The partnership between Marston’s and UKWSL is part of a wider drive for sustainability solutions across the business. The breweries and pubs group committed to zero waste to landfill by 2020 and starting from around 70 per cent has already achieved 99.5 per cent.

Group energy manager Chris White said the 0.5 per cent was a negligible amount and represented material that could not be disposed of by other means, such as asbestos.

UKWSL’s managing director Max Kanda said: “Marston’s vision and commitment to developing a more sustainable business model has helped position them at the forefront of the hospitality sector. We look forward to continuing to work in partnership with their team in order to change attitudes from waste to resources and develop increasingly circular solutions for these materials, which optimise both their commercial and environmental value.”
