Nisa-Today's roll out waste packaging scheme

Nisa-Today’s, a member-owned organisation providing benefits to independent retailers and wholesalers, is to roll out its waste packaging scheme to its entire membership.

It follows a trial of the scheme at 155 of Nisa-Today’s stores within the M25 area, which began at the start of the year.

The trial saw the introduction of a store recyclable back-haul programme in conjunction with Environmental and Compliance Solutions (ECS), part of logistics company DHL. Cardboard and plastic packaging from members’ stores was collected by the DHL Nisa fleet, following each delivery, and this was then taken to Nisa-Today’s depot in Harlow and recycled.

The scheme aims to reduce members’ landfill charges with the potential to cut their annual waste costs by up to 90%.

From this week, the scheme will be available to any member served directly by the Harlow depot, not just those in the M25 area. The company intends to roll out a similar scheme from its Stoke depot starting on 13 September.

Distribution director Jonathan Stowe said: “We are beginning to exploit our new relationship with DHL and provide members with increased savings and extra benefits. This initiative has so far received excellent feedback from members and the trial has been extremely positive.”
