SOLIHULL businesses are being invited to find out more about the new recycling regulations coming into force.
Businesses in Cranmore and Monkspath, Birmingham Business Park and Elmdon Trading Estate can get a free one to one help session from a dedicated business advisor to understand the regulations, what they need to do and what resources are available to help them as a pilot gets underway in the borough.
The regulations will require all businesses, healthcare establishments and academic institutions to separate for recycling, glass bottles and jars, metal food and drink cans, plastic bottles, pots, tubs and trays, paper and cardboard and food waste from their general waste.
Solihull Council is working with WRAP, a global sustainability charity, and Sustainability West Midlands (SWM) to deliver the pilot scheme, which runs until April 21.
Businesses outside the specified areas are still encouraged to take a look at the new Business of Recycling website which provides a waste calculator tool to help businesses learn how much waste they generate and how recycling can save them money.
The website also features step by step guidance to ensure they are compliant with the regulations and free downloadable communication resources to promote recycling in the workplace.
Anna Bright, chief executive at Sustainability West Midlands, said: “As champions for sustainability in the West Midlands, we’re excited to be working with Solihull businesses to help them recycle more efficiently and be fully prepared for the imminent changes to recycling regulation.
“We know how many businesses in Solihull are passionate about being environmentally responsible and recycling in the correct way.”
All meetings must take place by April 21 and places are limited.
Businesses in the eligible areas can book their session by emailing [email protected] or calling 07751 930625.
