Environment, Recycling and Materials

At Henderson Signs, we recognise the importance of managing our impact on the planet, which is why all of the signs and boards we produce are 100% recyclable. We only use materials that are widely processed in UK recycling plants, and work with a network of recyclers and ethical waste management companies to promote the sustainability of the industry and protect the environment.

Our Commitments

Henderson Signs recognise our responsibility for the environment and will ensure compliance with all relevant current and future legislation. Where appropriate, we will also endeavour to be compliant with appropriate codes of practice.

We are committed to minimising the environmental impact of our operations and products. In particular, we will achieve this through our commitment to:

  • reducing the amount of waste produced during the production of our signs;

  • and recycling our waste in line with all local authority regulations;

  • only using recyclable materials in the signs we produce;

  • ensuring any timber and paper we use is sourced sustainably;

  • where possible, endeavouring to procure materials from within the UK to lower our carbon footprint;

  • providing clear and accurate information to our clients regarding all materials used, and the correct method for disposal and recycling;

  • reviewing and enforcing our sustainable procurement policy to align with good practice;

  • minimising noise from the site; and

  • working closely with environmental advisors and regulators to improve our overall environmental credentials, and to ensure the ongoing conservation of sensitive ecosystems for which we are responsible.

The company will foster environmental awareness and understanding in all employees, suppliers, customers and subcontractors. Where practicable, the company will provide information and assistance to customers on environmental issues arising from its products and services.

Any offcuts are collected and disposed of in an environmentally friendly way by a local waste management company, where they are recycled to be used as fuel to provide heating. All other waste generated during production is collected and recycled by Veolia, one of the countries largest ethical waste management companies.
