At Low Carbon Pathways we are always looking for ways to be environmentally conscious, which is why we invest in research.
Recycling isn’t a new idea but it is certainly one worth talking about.
One of the main reasons to recycle items is that it keeps them out of landfill.
Landfill is essentially just a pit full of rubbish which will be buried in the ground. By reusing and recycling as many items and materials as possible we can keep the volume of rubbish going to landfill to a minimum. Contact us to find out more about our landfill projects.
Decaying and decomposing rubbish produces chemicals which form leachate and landfill gas both of which contaminate the air and nearby waterways. Methane and Carbon Dioxide are emitted which contribute to climate change. Read more about carbon emissions here.
