Read our latest case study - Making Zero Waste to Landfill (ZWTL) a reality

Schneider Electric UK develops technologies and solutions in the energy sector and places a strong ethos on improved sustainability and environmental performance.

WCRS has been working closely with Schneider Electric and their team at Scarborough for over five years helping them to increase the number of material lines they are able to recycle, earning them notoriety within the organisation as the leading light on achieving Zero Waste To Landfill (ZWTL) and setting best practice in managing waste resources across the company.

Turning ZWTL into a reality

WCRS first started working with Schneider Electric UK
to recycle their cardboard waste but now manages ten
different segregated lines of waste material.
These waste streams include, cardboard, polythene,
timber, polycarbonate, hard plastics, polypropylene,
various metals and general waste. All of the recyclable materials managed by WCRS are baled or crushed and collected for onward reprocessing, all of which takes place cost effectively here in the UK.

Paul Vasey, Schneider Electric says:
“WCRS have been with us every step of the way and
have been extremely proactive in identifying ways in
which we can increase our recycling and achieve our
environmental aspirations. Their flexible approach has
enabled us to appreciate and make the most of our waste resources. To be recognised as a leading light on best practice is a fantastic accolade for the site and testament to the partnership between Schneider UK and WCRS.”
