Factsheet Circular procurement Meerlanden
Meerlanden provides waste collection and waste processing and manages public spaces. Each year Meerlanden collects 62,000 tonnes of organic waste. This organic waste is processed into five new products, including green gas and compost. The procurement department uses a circular approach in its procurement process. (June 2017)
There are circular economy procurement processes for workwear, mini-containers and facilities where possible, and in the maintenance of its own grounds, buildings and systems. Meerlanden is also one of the leaders of the Royal Dutch NVRD (association for waste and cleaning management) 'Invest in Circular' project. Within this project, Meerlanden is working together with others on the circular procurement of mini-containers.
