To help retail customers reduce their environmental impact, A.F. Blakemore sends waste to a recycling centre on its Willenhall estate. 

The centre provides the facilities to recycle paper, cardboard, polyplastics, aluminium, glass and waste packaged food, which customers can backhaul as part of the distribution process. 

Waste food is processed at an anaerobic digestion plant, which generates biogas to supply the National Grid and agricultural supplements. 

Not only does the recycling operation reduce stores’ impact upon the environment, but it also helps to minimise costs for retailers associated with waste disposal.
