Zero Labels 2 Landfill

Simply by segregating our label conversion waste we can ensure that a 100% diversion from landfill is achieved. 

With brand owners and supermarkets putting pressure on the supply chain to be more environmentally aware, BPIF labels, together with one of the major suppliers of self-adhesive material, have commissioned Prismm Environmental to come up with alternative solutions for the disposal of waste.

The Zero to Landfill project is intended to cut the 200,000 tonnes of matrix and production waste that is sent to landfill every year by UK label converters. This is expected to help save costs while boosting the environmental credentials of the industry as a whole - something that is increasingly on the agenda for suppliers to brand owners and major supermarkets.

This scheme launched in April 2013 and there are now over 50 label converters involved. So far we have diverted over 10,000 tonnes of waste from landfill to a waste converter who can convert the labels waste into bio-mass fuels.

Simply by segregating our label conversion waste we can ensure that a 100% diversion from landfill is achieved.
