Tesco renews packaging waste contract

Supermarket giant Tesco has renewed its contract for the management of 12 recycling service units (RSUs) throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland with supplier Norbert Dentressangle.

Established by Tesco in 1995, the RSU network handles all loose equipment and packaging waste from more than 2,000 stores, including trays and roll cages.

The items are collected by Tesco’s store delivery vehicles and taken to the RSUs on the return trip. Returnable items are then processed for collection and reused by Tesco and its suppliers.

In 2008, the RSUs contributed to almost 80% of the 400,000 tonnes of material recycled by Tesco in the UK.

Norbert Dentressangle is responsible for activities within all 12 RSUs, including packaging waste baling and equipment sortation.
