Our plastic ‘milk round’

We produce a lot of our own waste. With over 200 sites receiving a monthly delivery of stock we discovered that most of the empty plastic containers and bottles we deliver were going in to customers general waste which goes to landfill. This simply isn’t good enough and along with our ISO14001 commitment to the environment, we decided that all of our plastic waste had to go to be recycled. Now, when we make a delivery, we drop in a clear recycle bag for the empty bottles and containers to go into. We then take the bags to be recycled. We call this our ‘milk round’ and it’s been tremendously successful and literally tons of plastic have been prevented from going to landfill.
