There’s no easy one-size-fits-all calculation to come up with a carbon emissions figure for your company’s waste. In order to come up with a final carbon emissions total, you need to know your waste streams, the weight of each stream, and what happens to it after it’s been collected from your site.
On Sunday, one of the local projects close to our hearts will get the chance to showcase its fantastic work on national television. BBC1’s Countryfile visited the Create For Nature project in Cheshire, which Kenny Waste Management has been supporting. We wrote about Create for Nature’s innovative approach to sustainable fundraising in our blog last month. It’s a truly original way of diverting wood waste from landfill! Sam Salisbury from Cheshire Wildlife Trust came up with a creative way to raise money: making and selling bespoke wooden furniture made from waste products. The Trust converted an old cattle shed in Bickley Hall Farm, and there was soon a team of volunteer furniture makers in place. They create the most beautiful, unique furniture which is sold through Etsy.
Kenny Waste Management has been invited to write for the Parliamentary Review, an independent publication that promotes best practice and knowledge engagement within industries. It’s a great honour to be one of the few organisations invited to contribute to the Review, and an excellent opportunity to share our expertise.
