Sustainable Waste Solutions earns landfill-free verification from NSF International

Sustainable Waste Solutions has earned landfill-free verification from NSF Sustainability, a division of the global public health organisation NSF International.

Landfill-free verification demonstrates that more than 99% of waste generated by Sustainable Waste Solutions never reaches a landfill but is rather reused, recycled or processed as waste to energy.

Sustainable Waste Solutions provides a broad range of reuse, recycling and waste services to its customers. Industries serviced include food manufacturing, pharmaceutical, high tech, automotive, defence, packaging and more. By verifying its landfill-free claim through NSF International, a reputable, independent third-party organisation, SWS is demonstrating its environmental leadership as well as its commitment to transparency and sustainability.

NSF International's independent landfill-free verification enables companies to demonstrate that less than 1% of their process waste - all waste generated by the company such as manufacturing waste, incoming packaging, office paper and food waste - goes to landfill for disposal and that they have documented waste management procedures and trainings in place. Qualifying for NSF landfill-free verification also requires:

* Retaining documentation and tracking all waste streams
* Maintaining containers to manage waste
* Establishing a program for electronic waste management
* Employee and contracting training
* Audits of the facility to ensure these procedures are in place
"Waste management is a critical issue that drives significant cost and operational complexity," notes Tom Bruursema, general manager of NSF Sustainability. "Leading organisations like Sustainable Waste Solutions are addressing the challenge through third-party verified zero-waste-to-landfill or landfill-free programmes.

Randall Hendricks, CEO of Sustainable Waste Solutions, says: "Our customers recognise SWS as the industry leader in providing sustainable waste and recycling solutions.

"The audit process was an eye-opening experience and helped us to develop better internal procedures. Having an internationally recognised organisation like NSF Sustainability verify that our company is landfill-free will help our company to grow."
