Considering how much waste is being generated at our warehouse in Trou Fanfaron, FTL has set up a successful workplace recycling program for paper, cardboard, plastic and broken shipping pallets through hiring a skip bin.
We also compost our organic waste in our head-office in Pointe aux Sables, and therefore, contribute to reducing carbon emissions, minimising groundwater contamination, and putting waste to good use by allowing it to become a nutrient-rich fertilizer for our office garden, maintained by staff members, and for employees to use at home.
