Visqueen has achieved Zero Waste to Landfill certification from Valpak at its Heanor and Rhymney manufacturing sites. These latest certifications underline the strong environmental credentials of the business, which as part of the RPC bpi group is the UK's largest polythene recycler in Europe.
A company can be awarded Zero Waste to Landfill certification when it sends no waste, including production, hazardous and packaging waste, to landfill; sends limited amounts of waste to energy-from-waste (EfW); and demonstrates a commitment to continual improvement in waste reduction and diversion.
As part of its ISO 14001:2015 accreditation for environmental management, the sites put controls in place to reduce the amount of waste they were generating, in line with RPC bpi’s annual waste reduction targets. This was done through effective staff training, raising the profile of waste management on site, and increasing the segregation of waste.
The Valpak certifications were then confirmed following an independent assessment and audit.
