A waste management deal has been signed by Asda and Norbert Dentressangle, extending an existing partnership between the companies by five years.
Under the terms of the new pact, the logistics and supply chain specialist will continue to operate eight Service Centres on behalf of the grocery giant.
The contract requires Norbert Dentressangle to assume responsibility for handling card, plastic, returnable transit packaging, food waste and returned goods for Asda.
Items come from around 400 stores across the UK and the recycling agreement has both enhanced environmental management and reduced operating costs for Asda, Ian Stansfield, the firm's Distribution Director, stated.
He stated the new Asda accord "demonstrates our continued ambition to be environmentally sustainable across distribution and the wider business".
According to the supermarket chain, it has prevented more than 90 per cent of rubbish from going to landfill, as well as all food waste, through initiatives such as its Service Centres.
