Concept recently received its annual waste report and are extremely proud to announce that for the duration of 2018 we had an incredible recycling rate of 98.58% with only 1.42% going to landfill. This equates to a total of 878.16 tonnes recycled and 12.66 tonnes to landfill.
DEFRA reports in their February 2018 edition of UK Statistics on Waste that in 2014 the UK generated 202.8 million tonnes of waste. Construction, demolition and excavation (CDE) was responsible for 59% of that number. However, the recovery rate for non-hazardous construction and demolition rate in 2014 was 89.9%, placing us ahead of the EU target of 70% by 2020. So, while the construction industry is still amongst the largest contributors for waste, we’ve come a long way with our recycle and reuse habits. We’ve also made a small improvement in the area of hazardous waste. In 2010, CDE was responsible for 4.8 million tonnes of the UK’s hazardous waste. In 2014, that number had gone down to 4.3 million tonnes.
They have set a target of 70% for 2020 and with Concept being at 98.58% we are already setting a standard. A big well done to all involved in helping Concept remain ever proactive in waste management and conscious about the environment.
