RECYCLING: Woolies' Efforts

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

WOOLWORTHS says it is making good progress towards its target of zero waste to landfill from its distribution operations.  Cardboard waste in food operations has been eliminated by using reusable, recyclable plastic trays to transport products to its foodmarkets.
Plastic bags remain one of the biggest challenges to the environment, and the company is committed to reducing plastic bag usage by customers by offering a wide range of reusable shopping bags. It has sold nearly a million of them in the last year.
It is also committed to introducing a nationwide programme to encourage customers to recycle. In October 2009, together with Engen and Nampak, it began trialling recycling facilities at some Engen service stations in the Cape Town area. Over 110 tons of recyclable materials were collected from the eight pilot sites in the first nine months.
