Retail Waste

What if you could divert your waste from landfill, reduce your waste handling costs, reduce collections from your site, reduce your carbon footprint and even generate revenue?

We’ll show you how you can.

Typical issues:

Traditionally shopping centres have engaged with the introduction of balers and compactors. As a first step this has delivered significant recycling of plastics and cardboard.

Retail operations are increasingly becoming ‘retail destinations’ with the introduction of more food outlets creating a higher volume of food waste. This has led to the need for further consideration of how food waste is handled.

Dealing with food waste is costly and can be a major headache for the retail sector. Typically food waste is carried to bins, which require frequent collections to avoid odour and potential vermin problems. The bins are unsightly and require HGV vehicles coming to site to collect them.

How Ecowaste can help

There are still significant opportunities for retail operations to reduce waste costs and increase recycling rates by diverting waste from landfill, reducing carbon footprint and improving the shopping centre’s environmental performance and public image.

Our equipment enables recycling of more waste streams at source, on site.

Once we have reviewed and evaluated existing waste output, we recommend the most efficient, cost effective and compliant bespoke waste management solutions.

Use of any of our equipment delivers a reduction in costs, an increase in recycling, a cleaner yard area with more space, a reduction in HGV site collections and carbon footprint reduced to zero. And all with fixed costs for 3 or 5 years.

In just three years, one retail centre operator with 10 sites diverted 12,323 tons of waste from landfill, achieved a 69% recycling rate and saved over £565,000.
