Happy with a big fat zero


WINDLES Group are one of just three organisations to receive a coveted gold Zero Waste Award for their commitment and innovation in improving effi ciency and recycling.


The awards scheme run by www.letsrecycle.


com recognises achievements in waste prevention, reuse, recycling and energy recovery and is open to anyone from the private or public sectors. Windles were the only print fi rm among the total 25 awards, and picked up one of the three gold awards after launching a company-wide recycling campaign including all staff. The judges were impressed with their wide-ranging solutions and staff and customer engagement after they undertook analysis of their waste and collected a wide range of materials for recycling. Aluminium plates from the presses are collected for


recycling and 70 per cent of cardboard boxes are also reused for a second time and a further 15 per cent for a third time before being sent for recycling. The fi rm also chips damaged pallets which are then used to produce enough energy to heat the warehouses and packing machine area using a custom-made burner with excess eco fuel given to staff and customers and sold to the local community around their Long Crendon, Buicks, base. Going forward, Windles Group


are looking to implement an on-site composting scheme. Windles’ Michelle Mills said: “We’re the only printer to have achieved this award and it’s at gold level too. “Andy Payne, out group logistics


manager, has been key in his commitment and dedication to ensuring we win, he works closely with the sales and customer service team ensuring that our customer needs are met.


“As retailers was green and publishers want green, so as manufacturers we want to be the greenest. “In the last two years the Windles Group has


promoted, both internally and externally, our passion to achieve zero waste and to be the leader within the print
