Towards zero waste at B&Q
2023 target: Zero waste to landfill. So far, we have reduced our waste by 26% compared to 2006 and 77% of that waste is recycled.
In our stores at B&Q, we separate our waste into 29 different waste streams for recycling and disposal. We work hard to minimise our 'General Waste' and to find new ways to reduce waste.
At home, sorting out rubbish can be a challenge. Split bins can make this easier and quicker. Setting up a compost bin is a great way to convert tea bags, coffee grounds, veg peelings and garden clippings into a high quality, free soil conditioner.
