Over the last 12 months, staff at HFS have been working tirelessly to implement sustainability strategies to ensure that we meet our goal of zero-landfill waste by 2021.

Reducing our environmental impact and establishing a culture of zero waste among our staff, suppliers and communities has been central to this.

Some of the first steps taken towards achieving Zero Waste to Landfill was to review the efficiency of policies and products across the business.

From evaluating the choice and usage of materials to installing inventive waste management solutions, Home Fix Scotland has continued to make huge strides to eliminate waste as opposed to just treating it.

Adjusting our own consumption habits can have a huge impact both within the business and at home. Our staff have undertaken a range of awareness courses, emphasising the environmental benefits and cost reductions that be gained by diverting waste from landfill.

We’ve also worked closely with individuals and organisations across Inverclyde and Paisley, to repurpose materials and encourage them to make sustainable choices of their own.

John Williams, Senior Contracts Manager at Home Fix Scotland said: “Our goal is to ensure that all the waste materials that leave Springkell street avoid landfill by being reused, recycled or converted from waste-to-energy.

By simply rethinking how we source and dispose materials, it should be possible to reduce the amount we waste and lessen our contribution to climate change.

These changes, big and small, make a real positive difference to the environment in which we work and live.”

Achieving that level of waste reduction isn’t going to be easy but we're committed to reducing our impact and look forward to continuing our landfill-free journey.
