Managing Waste Responsibly
We are actively fulfilling our environmental, social and ethical responsibilities as well as ensuring that we provide our clients with sustainable products and services. Both of our depots have dedicated recycling centres where waste materials are sorted and processed. It is our mission to close the loop for waste management.
Waste Not, Want Not
That's our philosophy and if it's your's as well then get in touch to find out how LOFT can support your waste and recycling policies or implement a change to the benefit of all.
In It For The Long Term
We only work with products of high quality, making them long lasting and minimising the need to constantly replace items. Even our mattresses are carefully disposed of, sent to independent companies who strip them down and recycle, reuse or manufacture new products from the respective parts.
Recycling As A Priority
We sort and seperate all cardboard and plastic on site. Any suitable second-hand furniture is reused and repaired and, where possible, donated to local charities. Anything non-recyclable will be collected by waste management companies and sent to an RDF facility, resulting in a 97% landfill diversion rate.
Going The Extra Mile
All of our delivery vehicles are installed with tracking systems. This allows us to plan routes really carefully, and constantly monitor fuel consumption. We put AdBlue into our vehicles, reducing the nitrous oxide and CO2 emissions of diesel engines.
Getting items to you happens with as little waste as possible too. The digital POD system we use to deliver our orders reduces the need for unnecessary paper delivery notes, and everything we do complies with the requirements of our accredited ISO 14001:2015 status.
Given how many mattresses end up in landfills every single day, LOFT decided we had to do our part to work towards cutting that number down. Sustainability is a choice and we have chosen to embed it in our foundations as across the business we work ethically and sustainably conscious to work towards making a better world for everyone. We have partnered with a specialist recycling company that strips mattresses and puts the raw materials to much better use.
Thousands of mattresses have been diverted from landfills since our partnership began, and we’re always working to boost that number further. If you want us to recycle your old mattress, just let our team know and we’ll take care of the rest. Our removal specialists are swift and flexible, working around you and your residents’ schedule to always ensure a smooth experience.
