We are pleased to announce that a recent internal report showcases a major increase in their diversion from landfill percentage.

GPT Waste ensures that providing sustainable waste services to their clients remains the focal point of their business, and the drive to achieve zero waste to landfill nationally remains at the forefront of their agenda.

As part of the ongoing review process of this, it has become clear that the landfill diversion figure achieved by GPT Waste continues to move towards achieving the zero to landfill goal. Since May 2013, GPT Waste has managed in excess of 260K tonnes of waste and we are now able to confirm a landfill diversion rate of 248K tonnes or 95% landfill diversion.

When looking to improve the success of their services, GPT Waste carry out internal waste audits to ensure they can use the most up to date waste diversion rate as a benchmark. The use of facilities that operate the most up to date and technologically capable processing techniques, ensure that our waste producing Customers’ benefit from the most cost effective and environmentally sound solution.

The latest results are confirmed by an internal report in which GPT Waste monitor the tonnage of waste they are handling and their waste movements. Their waste movements consist of the collection arrangements and processing of a varied amount of waste materials, where 95% of landfill diversion was achieved.

GPT Waste work parallel to their approved service providers who support them in the delivery of fully compliant waste management for all waste streams across the UK.

Guy Cherry, Managing Director of GPT Waste Management, said:

“Cost reduction and landfill diversion remain our focus and to date this year we have actually achieved 96% Landfill Diversion in recent months which suggests the opportunity exists to continue to improve on current levels month on month. The more waste GPT manages, the more savings we can provide for our clients and the more we can divert from landfill.”

He went on to say:

“In terms of the figures, over the last 12-month period, we have seen the greatest volumes of waste diverted from landfill since GPT’s inception which is a great achievement. We are extremely proud to see diversion rates increase across the board, year-on-year and it is a clear indicator of the positive shifts happening throughout the waste industry.”

GPT Waste have been working in consultation with their clients to understand varying waste requirements. By identifying, redefining, and reducing the process to dispose of waste, they can ensure cost savings will be generated consistently.
