Roman Receive Praise for their Waste Management Info-graph

Transcript of  Waste Management Info-graph

Following an annual visit from our Waste Management Company we were delighted to hear that the amount of waste recycled by us this year, has reach a staggering 93%.

Throughout 2012 we have produced a total of 250 tonnes of waste – out of this we recycled 233 tonnes, sending only 7% to landfill…smashing all targets and expectations.

These fantastic stats have received high praise from our Waste Management Company, International Waste Management, who commented: “We are very impressed with Roman’s efforts to continually improve and reduce the amount of waste they send to landfill. Their stats are a shining example of what can be achieved when a proactive approach is taken to how a company manages its waste. We are confident that as new recycling technology comes in to the industry, and with the on-going efforts of Roman, they can only further improve the current recycling figures.”

As an ISO14001 accredited company, we continually strive to reduce our impact on the environment, in line with the standard. In terms of waste management we monitor all the waste generated in the business, such as; cardboard, packaging, glass, steel, brass, plastic and aluminium. This includes all packaging from products supplied into our housebuilder partners, which we always bring away from sites and return to the main factory. This ensures we can effectively monitor all our waste to ensure where possible, it is recycled.

John Wright, our Operations Director, commented: “We were delighted to see how much our waste management has improved. As a company we are very conscious of our impact on the environment, and are always working hard to improve this where possible. We manufacture all our products in the UK, so there can be a significant amount of waste generated from the operations within the business. Recycling and managing this waste is very important to us. Congratulations to Ian Simpson, who coordinates our environmental activities, ably supported by International Waste Management, and of course to the rest of the ISO team at Roman.”
