Zero labels 2 landfill

Zero labels 2 landfill scheme

What is the Zero Labels 2 Landfill scheme?

The scheme applies to and will benefit all companies that produce label waste, covering the whole label industry supply chain.

The scheme is run by Reconomy and sponsored by the British Printing Industry Federation (BPIF).

  • We are able to process your label waste and avoid sending to landfill
  • Size no longer matters as we can collect anything from 600kg to 26 tonnes at a time
  • Every printer in the UK from the smallest to the largest is inclusive
  • We have developed a cost effective and efficient logistical network that covers the entire UK
  • We can guarantee total destruction and offer Certificates of Destruction for all waste collected
  • Label Printers already signed up to the scheme have diverted 5,925 tonnes from landfill in 2015

The problem

Label Waste is going directly to landfill even when it can be recycled or recovered

An estimated 120,000 tonnes of label waste is landfilled in the UK annually
Mainstream waste contractors are not able to offer viable recovery options for bulky label waste
Landfilling this waste is more costly and environmentally irresponsible
Other options have previously proven to be more costly and inefficient
Logistics of moving this waste is difficult due to size and weight
Landfilling sensitive label waste does not guarantee secure destruction and disposal
