“Most significant improvement in recycling of waste since start of cardboard waste collection”

The separate collection of plastic packaging from businesses under the new Waste Act is the biggest single change in the way K-stores sort waste since the collection of cardboard waste was started in the 1990s. During January–August, the amount of plastic waste collected by K Group had already increased by 200 tonnes on the same period last year.

From clothing to raw material – K Group’s discarded workwear is given a new life as fibre

Discarded workwear is now recycled at K Group and converted into a new raw material for textiles. In a circular economy cooperation project with Touchpoint and Rester, discarded workwear will be recycled into fibre. Potential uses for the fibre are currently being sought in K Group’s own operations. In the future, an outfit worn by a salesperson at a K-store may end up as raw material for an interior decoration product or a new piece of clothing. The stores included in the cooperation have more than 20,000 employees, so a considerable amount of workwear is consumed.
