JWS Waste Carbon Savings For May 2014 – April 2015

JWS Waste have the highest carbon saving figures to date for 2014 – 2015


The recent annual Carbon Saving Figures for JWS Waste are evidential of our success in minimising the environmental impact of our waste management procedures. This year, JWS Waste has received the highest figures for landfill diversion and carbon savings to date, with a total of 143,196 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill, and carbon savings of 10,706 tonnes.

JWS Waste have had a significant rise in CO² Saving over the past 5 years. Landfill diversion is a high priority for JWS Waste in line with our Environmental Policy and Objectives. Since 2008, the amount of material we have recycled and diverted from landfill has increased by 61,911 tonnes, meaning a relative and successful increase in CO² Savings by 4,249 tonnes.

The escalation of our landfill diversion and CO² saving figures has occurred as JWS’s waste intake has largely increased. JWS Waste have had successful landfill diversion figures through Energy From Waste (EfW), which has been environmentally successful.

Recent upgrades to JWS’s MRF Plant have also significantly improved our CO² Saving Figures. New, efficient waste plant machinery have provided huge improvements to JWS’s waste segregation and recyclates, allowing us to source the maximum quantity of recycled materials from the waste to reduce the chance of landfill disposal.

As customers and partners strive for greener businesses, JWS Waste can ultimately help achieve the customers environmental goals and targets with an overall recycling rate and landfill diversion rate of 98%.
