The retail sector has its own unique and complex requirements where waste management is concerned, in particular, there are both consumer needs and corporate requirements that need to be catered for in the same environment. Leading retailers recognise that they have a responsibility to the environment and are now committed to programmes that will reduce the volume of waste sent to landfill through the redesign of packaging.
Shops of all types and sizes, retail chains, supermarkets, grocery outlets, retail parks, shopping centres, fashion stores, DIY sheds etc are all able to benefit from our extensive experience of retail waste management which allows us to provide a personalised and tailored service that is efficient, cost effective and reliable. The broker model brings many benefits to retailers. The ability to select local specialist companies on a nationwide basis means that we provide our customers with exactly the right kind of service in the most efficient and eco-friendly way.
Major retailers have stated that they will stop sending any waste to landfill and are adopting a zero waste to landfill policy. Our specialist providers deliver innovative waste management services that are driven by a need to recycle and desire to enhance corporate environmental profile. Our retail waste management model is forward thinking and based upon best practice solutions that are compliant with any changes in government legislation.
UKWSL philosophy is based on continuous improvement programmes. The agreed strategy of retail waste minimisation is to recycle, reuse and recover and is at the forefront of our rationale. Our unique reporting system “the Hub” delivers accurate and informative data online 24/7 that will assist you in your environmental reporting and enable you to assess your performance and ours.
Staff education and engagement is fast becoming one of the biggest challenges faced by employers with particular regard to waste segregation, which is where cost savings and compliance can be lost or won. Having UKWSL as your waste partner brings the dual benefits of having a partner who understands these challenges and can help you with a solution. As a Wastesmart accredited company we are able to design and deliver staff training and education programs to suit your own individual needs.
