Waste Management Infographic – The Fourth Utility
GPT Waste launch an Infographic to highlight the opportunities for waste.
GPT Waste, the largest UK independent provider of waste management solutions and sustainable waste services has launched an Infographic to highlight the opportunities for waste to be recognised as ‘The Fourth Utility’ and a revenue stream.
GPT - ‘The Waste Solution’ works closely with suppliers and clients to reduce, re-use, recycle or recover waste, which in turn ensures diversion from landfill. Through co-operation and education, GPT apply the ‘waste hierarchy’ in a practical approach to client sites.
The company has launched an Infographic which simplifies waste collection and recycling processes. It demonstrates the journey for waste from collection, through the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) illustrating how revenue opportunities can be achieved by commoditising recycled materials.

Tony Mottram, Commercial Director at GPT Waste said:
“Waste is becoming the fourth utility; landfill disposal isn’t necessary or fashionable. Organisations are segregating waste on site which is then being managed through facilities such as MRFs. It’s worth noting that there is a battle for tonnage to provide feedstock for non-landfill disposal routes. Yet manufacturers are still disposing of by-products and secondary products as traditional waste streams, which could be valuable commodities to other manufacturing organisations.”
He went on to say:
“We work with clients to help reduce and manage waste efficiently in turn diverting waste from Landfill. Our approach is to identify more efficient ways of managing existing waste streams and to simplify the process. The next step is to then identify the most sustainable route of recovery or disposal. It is a simple approach but all ‘waste’ has a direct or indirect value to the organisation creating it or the one involved in its disposal, the challenge is to recognise this.”
