Devon Contract Waste remains the only Zero to Landfill operator in the South West.
Established since 1989, Devon Contract Waste is the south west’s leading independent commercial waste handling firm. With a unique focus on cross-organisational sustainability, Devon Contract Waste is perfectly positioned to support businesses in Exeter to improve their green credentials.
Devon Contract Waste is more than a waste operator. We aim to be our clients’ partner in achieving environmentally responsible waste services. Under our flagship Zero to Landfill model, Devon Contract Waste aims to divert as much waste as possible from landfill. With a fleet of more than 30 vehicles, featuring the latest weighing technology and fuel-efficient engines, we collect mixed waste from customers, reducing the number of journeys needed and minimising CO2 emissions.
Devon Contract Waste remains the only Zero to Landfill operator in the South West region to process all waste for recycling, rather than sending the majority to Energy from Waste plants for incineration. While one tonne of waste burned for energy could produce enough electricity to power 15 average UK households for a day, a tonne of aluminium that is recycled could save enough power to supply those same homes for four weeks. We operate Zero to Landfill across our portfolio of commercial waste and recycling services, recovering as much recyclable material as possible, before the remainder is processed for Energy from Waste.
Nothing goes to landfill.
Confidential waste is shredded before being recycled; electrical waste is broken down for recycling and safe disposal of hazardous components; food waste is processed for anaerobic digestion to produce biofuels; and green waste is composted or used to produce wood chip fuel. The list goes on. All our waste and recycling streams are fully traceable so we can assure our customers that their waste is processed legally and ethically with our UK and European partners.
Our sustainable model represents a positive step towards achieving a closed-loop economy and provides materials to the manufacturing industry, creating jobs at all stages of the processing journey. Zero to Landfill saves resources and energy, reduces our region’s carbon footprint, and promotes a sustainable business community.
Devon Contract Waste is proud to partner with Grow Green to encourage more Exeter businesses to take steps towards achieving a more sustainable business community. Every step – big or small – makes a difference and, with enough steps, we can make great strides together.
Through the collaborative relationships we establish with our customers, we support businesses to implement waste and recycling processes to meet their unique needs – there are no one-size-fits-all solutions. We work with clients to examine their supply chains, reduce reliance on materials that are difficult to recycle and explore viable alternatives. Through our high specification weighing and tracking technology, we can produce accurate reports to monitor successes and identify further improvements. Sustainability is a journey and we are here for the long-haul.
Signing up for Grow Green is a great step towards a greener and more sustainable future for your business and for the Exeter community. We can all make changes and, with support from each other, we can make them count.
