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 2016

Diversion from landfill 99.2%

Reuse/recycling including Anaerobic Digestion 83.4% 

Energy recovery 14% 

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.
