Alshaya Trading Co is one of the largest retailers in the Middle East, covering 11 countries and representing major global brands in fashion, footwear, children's clothing, health and beauty, furniture, dining, eyewear and many others.
Massive amounts of packaging waste are generated every day from their logistics centre, including cardboard, plastic & EPS (expanded polystyrene). Prior to partnering with Mil-tek, this waste was disposed of at significant cost, took up a lot of valuable warehouse space and required a lot share of manpower to deal with the constant flow.
Mil-tek provided Alshaya with a total waste management solution that included a 205 pneumatic, a hydraulic H600 baler, and an EPS 1800 Polystyrene Compactor.
Recycling is now possible with an overall reduction in carbon footprint and duty of care to the environment established. Alshaya recycles all of their waste and generates commodity income from each individual waste stream.
This has reduced the cost of their waste disposal, and allowed for a systemic and secure disposal of waste.
