Knutsford-based Packaging Automation has been recognised for its green credentials after being selected as a winner of a new environmental award. Packaging Automation, who manufacture innovative, versatile and cost effective filling and tray sealing solutions, has received the award from leading waste and recycling company, ACM Environmental PLC, for becoming a 100% Zero to Landfill Business.

The award acknowledges that none of the waste produced by Packaging Automation is sent to landfill and instead more environmentally sustainable methods are used to recycle, recover and reuse it.  By working in partnership with ACM, Packaging Automation has pledged a commitment to a low carbon future by following the principles of the waste hierarchy to achieve
the diversion of 100% waste from landfill.

Russ Sampson, from ACM Environmental (Manchester and Merseyside), says: “We are delighted that Packaging Automation is the first recipient of a new Zero Waste to Landfill Award.  We are delighted to be working in partnership with them to help implement an environmentally-sound waste management strategy and to see them achieve, and sustain such impressive landfill diversion results is extremely gratifying.”

Neil Ashton from Packaging Automation says: “We are extremely proud to be working with ACM to support our environmental policies. Waste reduction is a topic that is important to many of our customers, so achieving zero waste to landfill is an important step to ensuring we are in tune with their commitment to the environment. It is also pleasing that the work we have done with ACM culminating in the award has also delivered cost savings for our business.”
