DHL launches environmental service

DHL Supply Chain has launched an environmental service, DHL Envirosolutions, focusing on waste, recycling, compliance and energy efficiency services.

The unit operates a managed nationwide service, from traditional waste management and recycling through integrated back-haul and customer take-back programmes.

It is licensed to handle any form of waste material, from bulk recyclables to dangerous and hazardous waste.

Services range from supervised and scheduled collections to ad-hoc and on-demand capabilities, each tailored to specific client requirements.

Organisations from all sectors have started to realise the potential for generating revenue from waste streams such as recyclables, while at the same time working towards meeting their environmental and sustainability targets. For instance,

Highlighting the savings available, DHL points to work with pub group JD Wetherspoon which has generated annual savings of more than 11,000 tons of CO2 and £150,000 on landfill tax.

Jos Daalhuizen, business director of DHL Envirosolutions, said: “Reducing landfill waste is no longer just about meeting legal requirements; it makes business sense. As DHL Envirosolutions extends its offer in this space, we will continue to develop increasingly innovative ideas that challenge the industry norm, and help businesses maximise the efficiency of their operation.”
