CH&CO Group is fully committed to ensuring that all its waste is disposed of in compliance with the Food Safety Policy, Planet Matters CSR Policy, The Environmental Protection Act and The Waste Regulations.

The aims of the Company’s waste management policy are based on the following principles, which are in the order of preference priority:
Reducing waste helps conserve natural resources and energy. Waste reduction means avoiding the generation of waste by using less material, using supplies and equipment more efficiently and buying products that are more durable, easily repairable or recyclable
Where practical, buy products made from recyclable materials or recycle used materials to the correct waste streams to sustain the recyclable market i.e. aluminium cans, waste oil, coffee grounds.
Where possible support and encourage others to reuse items before discarding, i.e. reuse of plastic bottles for water or use of crockery/’keep a cup’ schemes for coffee cups.
