The South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has shown that its work to save the environment has proved to be no waste of time after figures show that two thirds of its rubbish was now being recycled.
The statistics also show that none of the Trust’s waste was being sent to landfill.
The organisation, which provides a range of community, mental health and learning disability services to the people of Calderdale, Barnsley, Kirklees and Wakefield, introduced new procedures to encourage recycling across the organisation in 2012.
Dawn Stephenson, director of corporate services said. “We’re extremely proud of our recycling figures. Staff from the Trust have really got on board and have been working hard to improve recycling across the organisation.”
