Waste minimisation is increasingly becoming a focus at Severn Trent as we strive for zero waste, reducing packaging and volumes of waste by using innovation and changing consumer behaviour. We are committed to auditing compliance against waste regulations across our estates and improving our performance and quality of data.
We have illustrated a year on year improvement in reduction in waste generation and preventing waste going to landfill.
We currently send just 16% of our office and operational waste to landfill, and we’re determined to drive that down further by increasing our recycling rates.
We’re developing the quality of our waste data and improving internal and external visibility of this data to track improvementsand report more regularly our performance.
