Waste Prevention for Businesses Case Study -- Hornbeam, Waltham Forest 2012-06-08 - No Comments

The North London Waste Authority (NLWA) interviewed Paul Gasson who works at the Horbeam Environmental Centre in Waltham Forest, London.

The Horbeam Centre was created in 1991 and the cafe had been running since 2008. One of their main goal is to establish and implement a zero waste policy. On this basis, they only produce a quarter of a bin bag of waste per week given that all the remaining waste is recycled. What measures do they implement in order to reach this result?
- Sell environmentally friendly cleaning materials
- Ask people to bring along their own bottles in order to reduce plastic waste
- Ask people to bring their old computers in order to reduce WEEE waste
- Set in place a very tight stock control
- Have adopted a  re-use and recycling policy
