Waste Prevention Reviews
We have considerable knowledge and skills in undertaking waste prevention and diversion reviews, particularly in the food and drink sector. Reviews adopt the waste hierarchy, as outlined in the Waste Strategy for England 2007, which places waste prevention as the top priority in the management of wastes, followed by re-use, recycle/compost and recovery as priorities before disposal. This enables us to target arisings, identify opportunities to manage waste and minimise its impact on the environment.
What Our Review Covers
Reviews typically cover manufacturing, processing, packaging, storage, recycling and disposal and incorporate:
- site visits
- mapping packaging and product wastes to inform and develop good practice
- recommendations on waste prevention, recovery and reuse
- recommendations on packaging waste prevention (primary, secondary and tertiary)
