Achieving Zero Waste to the Landfill
Our ambition whilst protecting nature and improving the welfare of the local community, many milestones have been achieved in pursuit of this goal since 2019: Five new centres were created (The Lab, Upcycling Centre, Sorting Centre, Bottling Plant, The Garden), 493,473 kg of waste saved from the landfill and up to 93% of total waste processed on-site.
Glass water bottles were created to replace plastic bottled water.
Used glass bottles were the main materials utilised to create the centre for recycling and upcycling activities called The Lab.
