Tool Company Helps Build Better Environment
Released on: September 28, 2011, 4:00 pm
Businesses generate approximately one quarter of all waste in
England, according to the Department of Farming and Rural Affairs. To
help reduce this figure, Tool-NET has introduced a company-wide
environmental policy that targets any inefficient use of resources.
A spokesman from the company said that it is “committed to treating the environment
with consideration and respect, particularly in the way it affects our staff, our
customers and the local communities in which we operate.”
The most sustainable of waste management techniques is to avoid the creation of
waste in the first place. With this in mind, the company does not to buy in
materials for packaging its products ready for shipping, choosing instead to re-use
materials from deliveries made to it.
Staff are encouraged to re-use paper whenever possible. Used paper is saved and
collected by contractors for recycling, as is a variety of other unavoidable waste.
Waste bins are collected for controlled disposal as required by the Environmental
Protection Act 1990.
The company invites its customers to return old batteries. These are then sent out
to its manufacturing suppliers for safe and environmentally friendly disposal.
Tool-NET has a policy to minimize the disposal of waste electrical and electronic
equipment as unsorted municipal waste and to achieve a high collection of WEE for
treatment, recovery and environmentally sound disposal.
