Retail & Wholesale Waste

Whether you’re a local convenience store, a national supermarket chain, shopping centre, retail, or wholesale business, Waste Experts can help unlock the true value of waste and turn it into a resource for retailers in an increasingly competitive market.

Building Sustainable partnerships

Recycling solutions for the Retail & Wholesale Sector

We understand the unique challenges faced by businesses in the retail and wholesale sector and we provide tailored solutions to help reduce environmental impact, save on waste disposal costs, and achieve compliance with waste regulations. Our services start with a comprehensive waste audit to determine the amount and types of waste generated by your business. Based on the findings, we will develop and implement a recycling program that meets your specific needs. Our recycling programs are designed to help separate recyclables from your waste stream, reduce waste disposal costs, and divert waste from landfills.

Waste Experts recognise key areas for targeted environmental improvements and will work with you to embed sustainable procurement practices into your daily activities. By working with your suppliers we will ensure they use minimal non-essential packaging when making deliveries to you and in turn encourage you to use less packaging when customers make purchases from you. We proactively ensure you purchase recycled products, e.g. recycled office paper and recyclable plastics, wherever possible. 

We ensure recycling bins are readily available to customers as well as staff and host training sessions so staff are educated on how to reduce, reuse and recycle at work. Our reliable collection and transportation services for your recyclables are completely flexible and can be tailored to your business’s unique needs. Waste Experts also supply recycling equipment, such as bins, compactors and balers, to help you manage your recyclables effectively.  Our goal at Waste Experts is to provide sustainable waste management solutions that help businesses in the retail and wholesale sector reduce their environmental footprint and achieve their waste management objectives.

Customer Facing Initiatives

Retailers are concentrating on a number of sustainability initiatives in terms of diverting waste from landfill,  implementing sustainable procurement and launching Net Zero strategies. Waste Experts believe its highly important to consider more customer-facing initiatives as part of your sustainability strategy, as this will be the driving force for educating people to make greener choices.

Sustainable Shopping

Leading by example can promote environmentally friendly shopping habits. Offering reusable shopping bags instead of providing single-use plastic bags can help eliminate waste.

Reduce Packaging

Working with your supply chain to reduce unnecessary packaging from products, then sourcing packaging that is easily recyclable or made from materials that can biodegrade.

Promote Upcycling

Depending on the type of retailer, you may be able to encourage upcycling or repairing of products in order to extend their lifespan or offer an alternative product in a part-exchange.

Environmentally Friendly Image

By having a clear recycling policy displayed at your retail premises, will also show customers that you’re taking the extra step to reduce your retail waste.

Retail Waste Management

Influencing Customers on Recycling behaviour

In the case of the retail sector, an efficient waste management plan ensures correct disposal of all types of waste generated, including recyclables and general waste, while adhering to the current regulations. Implementation of effective waste management measures enables identification of the areas within the business that generate excessive waste and suggests ways to minimise the quantity of retail waste that ends up in landfills.
