101 Waste Management
101 Waste Management has been created to fill a need within the industry, We believe that we have a responsibility to safeguard this world for future generations, and we feel that we can do this in several ways the easiest of which is ensuring that any waste we produce is disposed of in the most efficient and cost effective way possible, with a real push for clarity and understanding when it comes to our waste stream management Processes.
That’s why the 3 R’s of Waste Management… Reduce, Reuse & Recycle are so important. We believe in the 3 R’s so much that we are endeavouring to hit our landfill avoidance targets within the next year of business.
When you use our management facilities you help to:
Conserve natural resources
The world's natural resources are finite, and some are in very short supply.
At a fundamental level:
Recycling paper and wood saves trees and forests. Yes, you can plant new trees, but you can't replace virgin rainforest or ancient woodlands once they're lost.
Recycling plastic means creating less new plastic, which is definitely a good thing, especially as it's usually made from fossil fuel hydrocarbons.
Recycling metals means there's less need for risky, expensive and damaging mining and extraction of new metal ores.
Recycling glass reduces the need to use new raw materials like sand – it sounds hard to believe but supplies of some types of sand are starting to get low around the world.
Protect ecosystems and wildlife
Recycling reduces the need to grow, harvest or extract new raw materials from the Earth.
That in turn lessens the harmful disruption and damage being done to the natural world: fewer forests cut down, rivers diverted, wild animals harmed or displaced, and less pollution of water, soil and air.
And of course, if our plastic waste isn't safely put in the recycling, it can be blown or washed into rivers and seas and end up hundreds or thousands of miles away, polluting coastlines and waterways and becoming a problem for everyone.
Making products from recycled materials requires less energy than making them from new raw materials. Sometimes it's a huge difference in energy.
