Bottle wash. Saving bottles from going to waste.
Working with Company Shop Group allows Asda to divert no longer saleable but still consumable bottles and cans of beers, wines, spirits and soft drinks that otherwise would have gone to waste. There are many reasons why these items become un-saleable. For example a damaged item in a pack, split outer packaging or where the selling barcode is on the case or the barcode is no longer readable. This collaboration has been possible through Company Shop Group’s investment in an inline bottle washer which has provided the much needed capacity for a sustainable solution. They are able to sort and wash for redistribution. This partnership ensures that we reduce our environmental impact while receiving a commercial return. January 2020.
