Waste

At Asda, we hate waste of any kind. It's a value that's close to our heart – and we’re pleased to say it’s serving us well.

 

Whether it's recycling cardboard, reusing fixtures and fittings, donating clothes and food or creating energy from waste, we view all waste as a resource and reuse, recycle, redistribute or recover wherever we can. 

 

Take a look at where our waste goes...

Performance 2017

Diversion from landfill 99.7%

Reuse/recycling including Anaerobic Digestion 87% 

Energy recovery 13% 

We donated enough food to make 1.8million meals 

We know that we still have work to do to reach our zero waste target. Our team is working hard, training colleagues, reviewing processes and looking at product composition and recycling methods to understand what more we can do.
