At Park Lane Press, we are motivated by finding new and better ways of doing things. This is why we are proud to announce the introduction of our Zero Waste to Landfill system.
Why is this Important?
In 2020, 8.4 million tonnes of waste was sent to landfill and 20% of total UK waste generated was commercial and industrial. At Park Lane, we believe it is our responsibility to the environment and community to reduce our contribution to this waste as much as possible.
Recycling has long been a vital part of our day-to-day, with 97% of our waste being recycled, only a minimal amount has been sent to landfill in recent years. However, we don’t want to stop there.
What is Zero Waste to Landfill?
Our goal is to create a closed-loop system to eliminate any waste going to landfill. All of our waste is now pre-sorted and as much as possible is recycled. Instead of being sent to landfill, the remaining unrecyclable waste is now collected for incineration to generate electricity.
The Benefits of Closing the Loop
Closing the loop is the ultimate goal of eliminating loss and waste. By establishing a system that utilises outputs like waste, recycling, and reusing them, we can significantly reduce the need for raw materials and minimize waste generation. This approach supports resource conservation and paves the way for a more sustainable and efficient future.
Zero waste to landfill reduces the environmental impact of waste disposal and waste being incinerated to generate electricity contributes to renewable energy production.
