Reclam Group is committed to reducing its operations’ impact on the environment, and through our recycling business we aim to spread this sentiment to the broader public.
Government authorisation is required for the extension of existing plants and processes and for the establishment of any new plants and processes. Authorisations must be obtained prior to the activities being undertaken.
The review resulted in:
- A group wide policy that the surfaces of all areas that may be subject to soil contamination must be covered with concrete, such as storage areas for recyclable metals.
- Environmental surveys are done on ground water, soil, dust and environmental noise where applicable.
- We also removed contaminated soil and installed concrete slabs at some sites, with drainage traps to collect the run‑off of potentially contaminated substances and prevent possible future contamination.
