Win-win-win cardboard recycling

"During a recent inspection of a local food manufacturer, one member of staff noticed piles and piles of cardboard packaging waste, although this was not part of their job they advised the company to contact a recycling company to take the packaging away.  Having researched recycling options the company e-mailed the council to say thanks for the initial idea. They are likely to save between £15,000 and £20,000 per year by recycling their waste cardboard.  

By being in the right place at the right time, by asking questions and making connections between two issues, we were able to get a very positive result from what started out as a routine inspection."
