Title: Leicestershire waste minimisation initiative : progress report March 1997
Author: Environment Agency West Midlands Region
Document Type: Monograph
The purpose of this document is to report on the progress of 10 companies who have been involved in the Leicestershire Waste Minimisation Initiative (LWMI) since 1994. In the first year of implementing waste minimisation projects the companies made a total saving of 0.75 million. The savings were made through the reduction of waste costs. Now after a further year of implementation, the savings are 1.3 million. This Report details how the companies achieved those savings. The Report gives a realistic view of a sample of small and medium sized companies over 2 years. The participants have made progress at different rates. Some companies have made rapid progress. For others, most of the benefit was realised in the first twelve months. The participants reflect many common business pressures such as organisational changes or transfer of product to or from other sites. In some of the project companies these changes have interfered with ongoing projects. Notwithstanding this, continued progress overall is reported and in some cases new waste minimisation opportunities have been identified.
