The challenge in reducing any organisation's contribution to landfill lies in employee and customer education, and in enforcing systems of waste management.  To achieve zero waste to landfill - in our case the remaining 6% - requires the implementation of extraordinary behavioural and technical solutions and the commitment of all involved, including both our own staff and the military end users of our services.

We faced a unique challenge in the waste management process, the handling of expended pyrotechnic stores from military training. These have to be checked as Free from Explosive (FFE) before leaving site into the waste chain.  Our staff have received special training in the identification and handling of these sorts of materials.
