Those involved in the education sector have long been recognised as pioneers in sustainability and today the appetite for ‘green’ solutions to waste management are more prevalent than ever.

Cawleys can ensure that all waste, including food waste, is disposed of in a way that is fast, economical and most importantly beneficial to the environment.

Our younger generations are particularly environmentally aware and with the help of initiatives such as Eco-Schools they are often at the vanguard of green thinking. As such, more and more educational institutions are recognising the importance of demonstrating environmentally friendly practices.

70 per cent of the waste produced by schools comes from paper card, and food. Choosing to recycle these waste streams using the correct segregation techniques can help minimise the amount of waste sent to landfill.

As part of your waste management programme we can provide full staff training, posters and signage. We can also arrange for our experts to visit your students to explain our full-circle waste management process.

We work for schools, colleges and universities, and have more experience in commercial food waste management than any other business in the UK, so if you’d like to know how we can help your educational establishment, contact us today.
