Zero Waste Week
Blenheim is backing a worldwide commitment to significantly reduce the amount of waste ending up as landfill.
Running from the 3rd to the 7th of September, ‘Zero Waste Week’ is an annual awareness campaign for reducing landfill globally.
As part of the Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site’s support for the campaign they have made a series of pledges online to further reduce their levels of waste.
There include an estate-wide cardboard recycling campaign incorporating the installation of a large compactor, as well as dedicated Recycling Operative and staff training to encourage sustainable behaviour across its operations.
During last year’s Zero Waste Week, Blenheim introduced waste segregation across all its offices and operations with items separated for recycling into different branded bins.
This, along with the adoption of a revolutionary way of managing, segregating and storing waste on the Estate, has led to a 50% increase on recycling rates in a year.
