In the second in our FCC Environment-sponsored Resource Revolution leader video interview series, John Lewis Partnership's recycling and waste operations manager, Mike Walters, offers a compelling retail perspective on how corporate resource efficiency is reshaping the waste supply chain. Following the publication of edie's recent White Paper, he forecasts a dramatic change for the waste sector in 20 years' time, in which more on-site diversion and treatment solutions are adopted to cut down on logistics and where disposal costs for businesses are replaced by income streams. "I don't think there will be something called waste, I think there will be end-of-first-life materials ... that's a phrase we are adopting now within our business."

Proprietary and vegetative combination employed for supermarket's surface water run off

Leicester City Council has worked collaboratively with Asda, ISG and ACO Water Management to achieve a first in sustainable urban drainage within a supermarket development. The solution is integrated drainage that combines proprietary and vegetative systems to achieve effective surface water management, whilst introducing a level of biodiversity never attained before on a retail development. Working to strict planning guidelines that required two swale inlets to be incorporated onto the site, the solution moved away from a the more common permeable paving to achieve a cost effective, near to surface solution that required minimal ground works. As a result, stormwater is successfully managed on or near the surface, in an area that would have typically been highly impermeable.
