The OPM Group have been awarded the certificate by Zero 2 Landfill Labels, which is sponsored by BPIF Labels

Many firms have a note to be greener with their products, or with how they source their supplies. Some customers will look for the environmental impact of a business before they use them, and having a conscious effort could persuade them to choose your brand.

Landfills are often a worry, as skylines and areas are tarnished by unsightly views. Not only are they an eyesore, they are also a danger to wildlife. Using other means to make sure that rubbish and waste is recyclable or biodegradable is a step forward that OPM Group has made.

The labels and packaging specialist has been awarded the Zero Labels 2 Landfill Certification for its efforts from BPIF Labels. Prismm Environmental confirmed that the OPM’s waste was being treated according to the scheme’s requirements.

OPM worked with Prismm to install systems that would allow it to dispose of waste accordingly. This move came in the form of a baler, an on-site compacter and specific bins. As well as this, the team received training on how to recycle correctly, and be safe when using the newly installed equipment.

OPM take their environment 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

Managing director of OPM, Chris Ellison, comments: “OPM take their environment 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.”

Landfill sites have become a problem, and many firms have recognised this, choosing other options to throwing waste away. The government has also taken note from this, and a future tax could be in put in place for those who rely on landfill sites too much. There is already a penalty for businesses that use more than their required landfill quotas.

OPM has made sure that their staff are fully aware of how to make recycling run as smoothly as possible. Its work has been supplemented by Prismm, which offers waste management solutions all over the country. On its website, Prismm states that a total of 42, 190 tonnes of waste has been saved from landfill sites.
