Wastecycle, a Nottingham-based waste management company, has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard certification for reducing carbon emissions generated by its operations.
Wastecycle says it cut its carbon emissions by 27% over the last three years against a reported regional average reduction of 7.6%.
“This is an important consideration for us and many of our major clients, including Nottingham City Council, East Midlands Airport and the Universities of Nottingham, Leicester, Loughborough and Nottingham Trent who are also committed to reducing their carbon footprint,” said Wastecycle’s development director Mick Ashall.
“We’ve achieved this by continuing our long tradition of recycling more of our waste and reducing our overall landfill tonnage. By following the waste hierarchy and recycling all we can, recovering materials for use as fuel and minimising landfill, we’ve helped reduce our overall carbon impact.”
