Don’t skip it, Recycle it!!

Because of an increasing shortage of Landfill space, the building industry is under increasing pressure from the Government to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner and adopt recycling waste procedures.The construction industry outlines that 20% of wastage on a site can be saved / reused. If the top 2,000 Contractors sold one half of their reusable waste, the DTI estimates this would generate a figure in excess of £100 million. With that in mind, reduce waste by ordering exactly what you need and help to keep wastage to a minimum.
