The Reconomy Circular- Total Waste Management in the Circular Economy – Issue 1

The Reconomy Circular will keep you informed of changes to waste management legislation, and will offer insights into the wider topics and emerging trends that will shape the future of the industry.
In our efforts to divert waste away from landfill we have formed some unique partnerships with businesses from many different sectors. We will be revisiting some of these successes in future editions of The Reconomy Circular. We will also introduce you to key team members who deliver services and solutions to keep you one step ahead in today’s competitive markets.
We are proud of our track record in helping thousands of companies to recycle or dispose of waste in a cost-effective, responsible and sustainable way. Aligned with the principles of the circular economy, we believe that all waste can retain genuine  value and purpose.
On behalf of the whole team here at Reconomy, thanks for reading.
