Wanless is committed to undertaking business in a manner that is environmentally responsible, having due regard for standards and expectations of the community and protecting the environments in which we operate. As a business we strive to continually improve our environmental performance and strategically assist our customers to improve theirs.
What you might be surprised at is that while you’re saving the planet, you’re also saving money. Clean waste streams – that is, sorted and uncontaminated rubbish – is a lot cheaper to manage. For example, a cardboard bin of the same size as a general waste bin will cost you up to half the price to collect and empty. That’s a 50% saving. The same goes for timber, steel and many other types.
Wanless recognises that strong environmental performance is critical to our businesses success where holistically we consider all wastes as a resource. We strive through our collections, Resource Recovery Alliance and our customers to incorporate, recovery, recycling and re-use in everything we do.
