Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire (PRWEB UK) 19 September 2013
Since September 2011, any business that imports, produces, transports, collects, recovers or disposes of waste has a duty to take all reasonable measures to ensure they have applied the waste hierarchy when transferring their waste.
The waste hierarchy is a list of approaches to managing waste, ranging from prevention, being the most favourable option through to landfill, being the least favourable option. The challenge now faced by waste producers is how to show that they have considered the waste hierarchy when they transfer their wastes.
Red Industries saw the inception of the waste hierarchy as an opportunity to develop a waste management app that offered their customers the tools to produce in-depth waste reports and a visual representation of their waste streams in relation to the approaches of the waste hierarchy.
The production and release of the Red Hierarchy App or RHApp was driven by the company’s commitment to providing sustainable waste management solutions and a belief that growth and sustainability can go hand in hand if managed effectively.
RHApp is an extension of that commitment; since it was launched on 1st August 2013, all waste producing customers have been given free access to the app, enabling them to enjoy greater transparency and a real sense of control in their waste management processes.
As sustainability is a core agenda for companies today, Red Industries saw effective communication as the key to changing behaviour and encouraging producers to see of waste as a resource rather than a burden.
To this end, RHApp features a discussion forum which enables the free flow of information, allowing customers to work together with the company to develop a greener, more sustainable waste management plan.
The app was designed and built to help customers achieve their environmental targets and Red Industries are confident that RHApp will prove to be an invaluable tool in the challenge to divert waste from landfill and build a more resource rich, sustainable future.
Red Industries are a nationwide waste management service provider with sites in England and Scotland. All waste producing customers enjoy full and free access to RHApp.
