In the financial year 2008/2009, a project was run with the aim of improving our management of the various waste streams created during the production process. The goal was to reduce the level of waste going to landfill. This was carried out by first improving our separation of waste so that materials that could be recycled were more fully recovered and sent for recycling. Secondly, by reducing the overall level of waste produced.
The result from this project was a significant reduction in our general waste, reducing by over 37% a month. This equates to a reduction of approximately 1440 tonnes of waste going to landfill in a calendar year. San Remo has maintained these recycling processes and the reduction in waste has been maintained in the years since.
