It is crucial that both businesses and households understand the importance of both recycling and using alternative methods to manage waste disposal. However, did you know that in 2011 businesses spent 885m on protecting the environment from waste?

UK Businesses Spend Millions On Waste Management Each Year

According to DEFRA (the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) 32 per cent out of the estimated 3 billion spent by UK businesses was spent on environmental protection. Overall DEFRA counts 885.4 million spent on environmental protection by UK businesses in 2011. The numbers show that 24 per cent was spent on waste water, 17 per cent went on pollution and 15 per cent was spent on nature protection.

Companies (such as construction/ demolition) need to comply with strict waste management regulations and have a Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP) for  projects. Failure to comply with these regulations carries heavy penalties for both the company and the individuals involved.

Did you know that England is responsible for generating 228 million tonnes of waste per year? Actions are being taken, and causes such as The Waste Prevention Programme for England aim to help organisations make the most of opportunities to save money through waste reduction. Since it is important that business owners and employees understand the benefits of alternative methods of waste management, the programme also aims to help both businesses and residents easily find information on how to reduce waste management costs.
