Leading British caravan and motorhome manufacturer Bailey of Bristol has announced a new partnership with local waste management company ETM Group to reduce its environmental impact, according to a report by Camping Trade World.
The partnership will see Bailey’s waste materials, including timber, aluminum, ferrous metal, polystyrene, vinyl, paper, cardboard, plastic film, and foodstuffs, processed at ETM’s state-of-the-art waste transfer center located less than a mile from Bailey’s production facility.
This will not only improve waste management at Bailey but also reduce the carbon footprint of waste transportation.
The ETM waste transfer center is capable of processing 150,000 tonnes of waste from Bristol and the South-West each year. It is equipped to segregate and recycle 98% of all mixed commercial waste received, diverting it away from landfill sites.
This is a significant accomplishment, as Bailey alone generates 720 tons of waste per year, the equivalent weight of 480 caravans or 205 motorhomes.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with ETM, another South Bristol family-owned business, to help us develop a waste management program compatible with our Net Zero ambitions. This latest initiative is part of the positive action we want to take to help safeguard the environment for the future,” Bailey Managing Director Nick Howard said of the partnership.
The partnership between Bailey and ETM demonstrates the company’s commitment to sustainability and reducing its environmental impact. It is an important step in the journey towards achieving Net Zero emissions and protecting the planet for future generations.
