St. David’s Earns Big Environmental Award

130stdavidsSt. David’s Shopping Centre has a great reason to celebrate this month. It just picked up the Green Apple National Green Champions award for its commitment to waste management and sustainability.

The center has successfully diverted 100% of its waste from the landfill. For its efforts, it was presented with the internationally-recognized accolade.

According to the center, St. David’s has diverted nearly 1700 tons of waste from the landfill since establishing its on-site Manual Recycling Facility. Eight full-time staff members sort the waste materials, including cardboard, hard and soft plastics, textiles, aluminum and glass. The materials have brought in a £42,000 increase in revenue. 81% of the overall waste heads to recyclers, and the remainder goes to a local energy-from-waste facility.

“We’re delighted to have received such a prestigious award and it’s all down to the dedication of our operations team who have been tirelessly working towards making our waste operation the success that it is,” said Steven Madeley, centre director.

“With over 180 retailers, it is important that we all work together to ensure that our waste is managed as effectively and efficiently as possible. We are now in the enviable position of diverting 100 per cent of our waste from landfill and are making a profit on this waste too.”
