Recycle, reuse, reduce: our zero to landfill pledge

90% of the waste generated across our Barnoldswick site is recycled - with all food, foam, paper, card, polythene film and metal waste going to local and national recycling companies.

Our objective is to divert waste from landfills and reduce the amount of harmful toxins and gases released into the atmosphere.

To help combat this we - in conjunction with our partners - introduced the Mattress Disposal Service.

Committed to cutting carbon

To improve conditions for people and wildlife we comply with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) - a government-led energy audit of all of our buildings.

This audit helps us to identify cost-effective energy-saving opportunities to help us cut energy consumption, reduce our carbon footprint and cut costs too.

We also save an incredible 100,000 litres of diesel per year through intelligent fleet management tool, Job Watch - which increases efficiency and improves road safety.
