What is a circular economy?

A circular economy prevents a product being used just once and allows a product to be re-used repeatedly. This means that products, resources and equipment are in use for longer, improving productivity and creating a more sustainable society for the future.

Benefits to your business

A circular economy should be included in your business goals and communicated internally so every employee understands the importance of reusing the waste they produce. A circular economy improves a business recycling and waste management systems, which reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfill. It delivers a more competitive economy, promoting sustainable economic growth and resource productivity.

There are many environmental benefits to ensuring your waste is reused, including reducing business carbon footprint, minimising air and water pollution from the manufacturing process and reducing greenhouse emissions from landfill waste.

How Shredall SDS Group can help

We can help your business reuse and recycle the waste that’s produced, ensuring it doesn’t end up in landfill. Paper is one of the easiest materials to recycle and it can be recycled up to seven times, ensuring it doesn’t get used only once.

Shredding all your documents ensures they’re recycled, whether they’re confidential or not. Not only does shredding your paper waste keep your documents secure, but it also helps promote a circular economy by recycling the paper into other paper products like toilet paper.

As well as providing on-site and off-site paper recycling services, we also recycle your waste. This is because cardboard recycles the same way as paper waste, given that the key raw material in cardboard is paper, which comes from trees. We can collect your cardboard waste from your home or office and provide storage options for large amounts, including wheelie bins and RORO’s.

Our textile recycling service ensures clothing materials are re-used, avoiding landfill and protecting your brands reputation.
