Plastic Surgeon signs up to WRAP’s Halving Waste to Landfill Scheme
Plastic Surgeon, the leading FM and construction industry repair specialist has signed up to the WRAP (Waste & Resources Action Programme) Halving Waste to Landfill Scheme.
Rob Mouser, Managing Director of Plastic Surgeon said:
“Last year we saved 64,938 items from landfill and carried out 208,221 repairs, this award gives us credible recognition for our commitment to sustainability. By signing up to the WRAP Halving Waste to Landfill Scheme, we can formalise our commitment to improving sustainability and further measure our success.”
The Scheme has a simple statement of intent:
“We commit to playing our part in halving the amount of construction, demolition and excavation waste going to landfill by 2012. We will work to adopt and implement standards for good practice in reducing waste, recycling more, and increasing the use of recycled and recovered materials”.
By carrying out cosmetic repairs, Plastic Surgeon can assist builders and contractors to improve their waste management dramatically. Legislation, such as the legally enforceable requirement of Site Waste Management Plans for any project valued at over £300,000 will only increase, so a long-term commitment to repair rather than replace will become ever more important. Plastic Surgeon’s expert repair and fine finishing service is quickly expanding into new sectors such as social housing, facilities management and insurance as more companies see the value in reducing waste and sending items to landfill.
