Prior to working with Fresh Start Waste all waste was being processed as General waste and not being recycled. Recycling levels now exceed 71% and regularly more than this level is achieved, with any non-recyclable waste being processed as refuse derived fuel which generates green energy, as opposed to going to landfill.
The services adopted by Missguided encourage segregation of general non-recyclable waste from card and mixed recycling, to ensure as much waste produced is fully recycled as possible.
There are internal bins where waste is separated at source, which is clearly labelled to assist staff in placing the right items in the right bin and maximise recycling.
The cleaning teams have been briefed on which clearly labelled external bin to place the internally collected waste in. Recyclable materials are sent for direct recycling and thanks to Fresh Start’s state of the art recycling centre, the general waste is further sorted to remove any recyclable items which may have been placed in the wrong bin.
