Helistrat will create Schuh's recycling strategy

15 May 2018 | Herpreet Kaur Grewal


Footwear retailer Schuh has awarded environmental consultancy and contract manager Helistrat a five-year waste and recycling contract.

 

The contract will see a phased implementation that will start with the company’s two distribution centres in Bathgate and Livingston and a number of Scottish stores. 

 

This will immediately enable the client to divert 100 per cent of its waste from landfill. 

 

Over the course of 2018 Helistrat will take all 136 of Schuh’s high street stores to a completely landfill-free solution.

 

Helistrat and Schuh will work to develop and implement a number of initiatives including the backhauling of cardboard from stores, the development of closed-loop packaging solutions and the recycling of other waste streams such as coffee grounds. 

 

Schuh will also benefit from an increased level of accurate and on-time waste data to demonstrate the financial and environmental benefits of the service and support the development of future sustainability initiatives.
