Packaging origination and flexographic plates manufacturer, Contact Originators, has now reached ‘zero waste to landfill’ status.
Partnering with waste recovery specialist B&M Waste Services, Contact now sends 100% of its site waste to be either reused, recycled or recovered at a dedicated ‘waste-to-energy’ plant, supporting the company’s drive towards circular and sustainable waste pathways.
The announcement marks the next important step on Contact’s long-term sustainability journey, as it aims to be the most ecologically sound business of its kind in the reprographics sector and support its print and packaging customers in new ways.
Jo Grundy, Quality & Systems Manager at Contact Originators, commented, “We are thrilled to announce that we have reached zero waste to landfill in our operations – this is an enormous step for our team at Contact. With the support of B&M, we have fundamentally changed how we do business. Our service and product range remains, but now our corrugated and flexible packaging customers can also rest assured that all our waste is managed responsibly and that our work contributes to a cleaner supply chain. Reaching zero waste to landfill has an enormous impact on our carbon footprint, but we know that our journey’s not over. Contact Originators is a business that’s unafraid to lead and is never satisfied with ‘average’ – just ask our customers! Targeting carbon neutrality is one thing, but we’re aiming for carbon negative as our end goal.”
