The Bethlem Royal Hospital, founded in 1247 and one of the world's oldest hospitals for the treatment of mental illness has recently taken delivery of a static compactor to deal with its cardboard recycling requirements.
A waste audit was conducted in order to address the issue of landfill costs. The hospital generates up to 5 tonnes of waste every month, all of which was going straight to landfill. As a result of the audit, it was recommended that a static compactor be situated near to the general waste compactor in order for facilities staff to easily recycle any cardboard items. Waste-associated costs will be considerably reduced. For more information on the benefits of recycling, please read more about the services Nicholls & Pearce offer.
