Nimans has announced a new environmental management partnership with a pledge to divert 100 per cent of its waste from landfill.
Nimans has teamed-up with local specialist JWS Waste to reprocess over 100 tonnes of waste consisting of tonnes of card, paper, plastics and general waste.
Chris Musgrave, Nimans’ Distribution Centre Manager said, “JWS Waste are now our dedicated waste partner and are working with us to provide a sustainable waste service – diverting 100% of our waste from landfill.
“They are UKAS accredited like us and this new partnership further strengthens our Corporate Social Responsibility strategy which operates alongside other initiatives such as Gold Investors in People status.”
Chris says card and paper is fully recycled along with clear plastic film whilst general waste is transported to JWS and sorted into recycled material or processed into refuse derived fuel.
Trish Waddington, JWS Business Development Manager said, “we are delighted to have been appointed the waste management supplier for Nimans, supporting their goal of a more sustainable waste solution. Work has already started, with JWS providing waste compactors and roll-on roll-off containers along with multiple wheelie bins to their various sites in Greater Manchester.
“Nimans’ operations currently produce waste streams such as cardboard, WEEE and general waste. JWS will be ensuring waste is managed sustainably, with general waste streams being brought to our Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) here in Salford for segregation.”
“Going forward, Nimans’ waste will be recycled or used as an energy resource to produce heat and electricity. We take pride in diverting at least 98% of the waste we process from landfill and are thrilled that Nimans are giving JWS the opportunity to help them achieve 100 per cent landfill diversion.
“JWS looks forward to working with Nimans as we help them achieve the best waste management solutions and improvements to recycling, carbon footprint, and overall sustainability.”
