The Chinese government has recently announced that it will ban the import of all scrap plastics and unsorted paper by the end of the year. Does this pose a threat to your business – are your waste disposal costs going to increase? Might it impact on your ability to send waste for recycling rather than landfill?
Now could be a good time to look for ways to reduce the amount of plastic and paper waste produced. Where do these materials come into your business? Is there a re-use option, eg re-usable pallet jackets instead of shrink wrap? What process gives rise to the waste? Is there an alternative?
