Waste Management Statistics 2022

8 October, 2023

Sustainability continues to be a focus for the business and our Sustainability Team have been hard at work updating key emission figures for 2022. This has included calculating electricity, water, mileage and waste figures for the calendar year. Below you will find details of our waste management statistics for 2022. These are split by depot & detail that we diverted 94.35% of our waste from landfill.

Diverting waste from landfill is crucial for several reasons:

  • Environmental Conservation: Landfills cause issues such as groundwater and soil contamination, greenhouse gas emissions, and air pollution.
  • Energy Saving: Recycling and waste diversion generally require less energy.
  • Reduced Land Use & Habitat Destruction: Landfills occupy significant land areas and can result in habitat destruction, altering local ecosystems.
  • Promotion of Circular Economy: Diverting waste from landfills is a key component of the circular economy model. The model shows that reusing, recycling and re-manufacturing keeps resources in use for as long as possible, reducing environmental impact.
  • Public Health & Aesthetics: Landfills can emit odours and release pollutants. These can negatively impact air quality and health of nearby communities.
  • Long Term Sustainability: As the global population grows, it generates an increasing amount of waste. Encouraging waste diversion from landfills promotes a more sustainable approach to waste management that can be maintained long term.

Additionally, our Sustainability team has been analyzing all our other efforts to ensure we include everything in the latest issue of our Sustainable Development Goals document. You can request a copy by emailing: sales@resapol.com.
