New Waste Management Service Launched For Food Manufacturing Sector

New Waste Management Service Launched For Food Manufacturing Sector

09:55 2017

A free waste management service that aims to get more food manufacturing businesses to recognise the cost and environmental benefits of baling and compacting waste is being launched. Wastesaving Audit is being launched by phs Wastekit, one of the biggest divisions in the phs Group and a key player in the UK’s waste management market.

The service includes a free site survey to review businesses’ current waste management practices, a bespoke consultation to advise on where cost savings can be made and a free trial of a baler or compactor machine, plus training in how to use it. It’s the most comprehensive free audit with no obligation currently on offer in the waste management sector.

“It’s surprising how many businesses are still unaware of the huge cost reductions that they can make using a baler or compactor machine,” says Joe Roberts, managing director of phs Wastekit. “That’s why we felt compelled to do something to open their eyes to the savings and created the Wastesaving Audit. “Balers and compactors will – without exception – save businesses up to 90% of their waste disposal costs, which will have a huge impact on their bottom line. The machines work by reducing the volume of general and recyclable waste by compacting it down and baling it, which means businesses can dramatically reduce the number of waste collections they need to pay for.”

“A lot of businesses also don’t realise that they can actually make money from baled recyclables like cardboard and plastic. Selling baled recyclables to recycling companies can generate a whole new revenue stream for them and reduce their landfill tax bill. We work with many businesses to ensure they make the most of that opportunity,” adds Joe Roberts.

Standard landfill taxes will rise to £88.95 per tonne in April 2018 and the latest figures suggest that UK commercial businesses are still producing around 15 million tonnes of waste per year*

phs Wastekit is a leading expert in waste management and has been providing high quality  baler and compactor machines, as well as servicing, maintenance and accessories suitable for all machine types, for over 35 years.
