Landfill is one of the least environmentally friendly methods of getting rid of our waste.
It produces toxic liquids which can pollute waterways and methane gas which contributes to climate change. It's also becoming a lot more expensive as companies and public authorities have to pay steadily increasing landfill taxes.
Leyland Trucks, like many businesses, had already taken steps to reduce its waste to landfill and over a 10-year period had cut the percentage going to landfill from 75% to 34%. In 2008, the company set itself an altogether more ambitious goal: to eliminate all waste to landfill by the end of the year.
