The group has a long term objective of sending zero waste to landfill, in FY2020 our main manufacturing sites at Clonmel and Wellpark both achieved this target. We will continue to use a waste hierarchy approach through prevention, re-use and recycling.
In our manufacturing operations, we routinely monitor our waste stream and target improvement annually. We measure raw material usage and yields on a weekly basis to ensure the efficient use of our resources.
Within the Matthew Clark business they are maximising use of return journeys when the vehicles are empty and backhauling cardboard and plastic to main depots. The cardboard and plastic are baled and sent for recycling. This not only negates the need for a standalone recycling service, but it also protects the quality of the recycled materials and ensures maximum recycling rates are achieved.
