High street retailer streamlines waste operations

Retail firm Crew Clothing has embarked on an extensive recycling drive and appointed SWR to handle all waste generated across its distribution centre and 70 high street stores.

The agreement will see SWR deliver an integrated service, enabling Crew Clothing to continiously monitor its recycling performance through comprehensive progress reports.

Crew Clothing's facilities manager Rachael Clark said: "Although we have made efforts at each store to segregate our waste and recycle, until now our approach to waste has been somewhat disjointed, serviced by several suppliers and administered at store level.

"As such we had little visibility of how much waste was being produced or how much recycling was taking place. The whole process has been simplified by the introduction of a centralised supplier."
