3D have been committed to waste recycling and reducing landfill waste since the company commenced trading. Our approach to effective waste recycling has been developed on the principles of economic and environmental sustainability. We have identified the key waste streams that arise on projects and have found recycling solutions for all of them.
In 2015 alone, 3D recycled in excess of 780 tons of waste recycling materials, all of which was audited and certified to cover a detailed waste audit for each of our clients. Due to this we can show our clients where it has been taken and to where in the next stage of the recycling programme. For example, all of our glass so far in 2015/16 has been recycled through one of our partners in the South East of England, which in turn was converted into resin for the use of table tops, preventing the waste going to landfill and reducing the carbon footprint for each of our clients. This is just one example of our recycling stream, from one of many waste materials.
Our strength lies in our ability to assess, from the outset the distribution of waste on each and every project, break it down by type and to then feed it back to our recycling partners. We constantly monitor the waste streams we collect and are always searching for new recycling options and opportunities to improve our clients carbon footprint on waste disposal. We follow strict SKA / BREEAM ratings and guidelines as part of our commitment of reducing the carbon footprint for our clients, (The SKA Rating is the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ environmental assessment method. Launced in 2009 for non-domestic fit-outs, it helps clients to evaluate a project against a set of sustainable criteria)
