We are committed to recycling both as part of our service offer and through all areas of our daily business operation. As licensed waste carriers we are authorised to dispose of all items which cannot be recycled. Items are recycled and handled at KB in conjunction with various business partners.
Cardboard packaging is collected in two large containers which are swapped weekly as are metal. Timber and other board materials go for shredding to create biomass fuel for local power stations.
To complement this facet of our offer we recently purchased our own biomass burner which reduces the amount of carbon miles necessary for transportation as well as keeping our warehouse warm.
Over 2019 we managed to recycle 437kg of cardboard, 2659kg of plastic and 327kg of polystyrene.
