The Problem

Label Waste is going directly to landfill even when it can be recycled or recovered

  • An estimated 120,000 tonnes of label waste is landfilled in the UK annually
  • Mainstream waste contractors are not able to offer viable recovery options for bulky label waste
  • Landfilling this waste is more costly and environmentally irresponsible
  • Other options have previously proven to be more costly and inefficient
  • Logistics of moving this waste is difficult due to size and weight
  • Landfilling sensitive label waste does not guarantee secure destruction and disposal
