World, As Seen from the most beautiful islands: Ireland and Cyprus

Lockdown measures led to less waste processed


Renewi waste processor processed less waste in the first quarter because of the lockdown measures against the corona virus. This was especially evident in April, according to the company that emerged from the takeover of the Dutch Van Gansewinkel by the British Shanks.

According to Renewi, the volume in the Netherlands decreased by about 15 percent in April, mainly due to less waste in waste containers. The amounts of waste from construction sites and bulky waste remained fairly stable. In Belgium, the company saw a volume decline of 35 percent in April.

Renewi also said that a project has been set up in the Netherlands to recycle medical waste such as used mouth masks from hospitals. In addition, up to 48,000 mouth masks can be recycled per day. The company is the largest processor of medical waste in our country.

To deal with the crisis, Renewi has lowered costs, for example, with salary cuts for top management. In addition, the company made use of the option to shorten working hours in Belgium. Renewi will publish its figures for the past broken financial year on June 4. The company is listed on the London and Amsterdam stock exchanges.
