Waste Management Services

About our Waste Management Services

Koreserv’s primary waste management objective, Zero Waste To Landfill. Our goal is to play our part in supporting national and global efforts in reducing our carbon footprint. Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose.

Increasingly, greater attention is being paid to waste management, and pro-active organisations are seeing the benefits of establishing a waste reduction program.

Recycling saves energy, helps keep materials out of landfills and incinerators, and provides raw materials for the production of new products. When waste cannot be prevented, recycling is the next best option. Recycling is more than extending the life of landfills. It is about making the best use of the resources we have available and conserving those resources for future generations. It is about conserving water, energy, land and raw materials.

Knowledge is power, by understanding the amount and types of wastes your organisation produces, you’re better positioned to find ways to reduce hauling costs and negotiate for waste and recycling services that actually fit your needs.
