Triton sends zero to landfill

Shower manufacturer Triton has achieved its aim of sending zero waste to landfill two years ahead of schedule.

Triton sends zero to landfill

Having adopted a long-term strategy geared towards recycling or reusing all waste components and materials by 2018, Triton has already achieved its target.

This comes less than 12 months after Triton introduced a number of environmental enhancements at its headquarters in Nuneaton, Warwickshire.

Last year’s introduction of a colour coded waste management system within the company’s factory enabled production staff to ensure the cross contamination of waste is avoided which significantly aids the efficiency of environmentally sound waste disposal. The process has been randomly audited ever since by Triton’s senior management to ensure continual improvement.

Managing director Lorna Fellowes says: “To have reached zero to landfill status so soon after putting a long-term strategy in place is a huge achievement for all of our staff. The success has followed real dedication from everyone based at our headquarters, who have embraced the changes we’ve put in place to make reuse and recycling second nature in our factory and offices.
