Veterinary Practice Europaplein is more sustainable. Due to the awareness in the veterinary about recycling and plastic waste, more waste will be separated. The results are as good as we could hope for. The veterinary has a decrease of 29% in residual waste, which results in fewer waste empties, from twice a week to once every two weeks. With fewer empties, the costs for residual waste will have a considerable decrease of 50% in year one.
Based on the current separation results, the expectation for 2019 is a decrease of the residual waste by 31% and the achieved environmental saving 53% of raw materials.
