DIY majors cut landfill disposal by four fifths

Leading DIY sector firms, such as B&Q and Homebase, have together cut their landfill tonnages by more than 80% and reduced packaging by a quarter since 2009

Eight do-it-yourself firms have collectively cut the waste they send to landfill by 83% in the past four years.

They also reduced product packaging by 25% over the same period.

The weight savings, calculated from a 2007 baseline, were made as part of a home improvement sector voluntary agreement managed by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP).
