OPM Group are Proud to Announce Zero Labels 2 Landfill Scheme Certification Awarded back to list

21 September 2017

The certificate was issued by BPIF Labels following Prismm Environmental confirming that OPM's waste was being treated according to the scheme compliance requirements.

OPM has worked closely with recycling-led waste management company Prismm Environmental Services. Prismm who offer a total waste management solution to businesses on a national scale commenced with an initial audit of the system, processes and waste streams. Prismm introduced various equipment to accommodate the waste being produced, as well as maximise efficiencies, the aim was to reduce the impact on the environment by utilising the latest technologies to divert waste from landfill sites.

A baler, an on-site compactor, and various bins were introduced to encourage waste stream segregation. The OPM teams received training as to the benefits to the environment of recycling as well as from a health and safety perspective in the correct usage of equipment. The OPM Management team assisted with staff training to help all members of the OPM team gain a strong buy-in to segregation and its importance in keeping recycles clean to achieve the highest levels of recycling.

Chris Ellison, MD commented, "OPM take their environmental responsibility seriously, we are proud to assure our customers that their label products are being produced with as little impact on the environment as possible."
