The GPT Waste Infographic highlights the opportunities for waste to be recognised as ‘The Fourth Utility’ and ultimately, a revenue stream.
GPT Waste works with suppliers and clients to reduce, re-use, recycle or recover waste, which in turn ensures diversion from landfill.
Our infographic simplifies waste collection and recycling processes. It shows the journey for waste from collection, through the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) illustrating how revenue opportunities can be achieved by commoditising recycled materials.
Guy Cherry, Managing Director at GPT Waste said:
“Waste is undoubtedly becoming the fourth utility; landfill disposal isn’t necessary or fashionable and producers are developing the process of segregating waste on site which can then be managed through facilities such as MRFs. It’s also worth noting that there is now significant interest in securing tonnage to provide feedstock for the waste to energy sector. Work can still be done to understand and subsequently prevent manufacturers disposing of by-products and secondary products as traditional waste streams and aggregating there potential value as commodities to other manufacturing organisations.”
He went on to say:
“We work with clients to help reduce and manage waste efficiently in turn diverting waste from Landfill. Our approach is to identify more efficient ways of managing existing waste streams and to simplify the process. The next step is to then identify the most sustainable route of recovery or disposal. It is a simple approach but all ‘waste’ has a direct or indirect value to the organisation creating it or the one involved in its disposal, the challenge is to recognise this.”
