At Holly Lodge, our operations centre, we have made several steps towards achieving zero landfill by targeting waste reduction, segregation and monitoring the weight of disposed products.
After just nine months we are down to less than 3% landfill, approximately 24 tons per annum. All waste fruit is composted locally with wood, metal, plastic and card all being separated and recycled. To make a further reduction we will also use a waste-to-fuel solution available locally.
This project has given everyone on site the opportunity to make a contribution and has unearthed some very enthusiastic environmental champions.
With our internal projects underway, the focus will now be extended to the supply chain, where we believe there are many opportunities to enhance our environmental performance.
