The National Distribution Centre (NDC) is at the forefront of our waste reduction initiatives. Each year, almost 1.5 million lbs of material is redirected from landfills for recycling or reuse by the NDC.
We've redesigned our equipment packaging in an effort to reduce the cardboard content by up to 40%.
Responsible life-cycle management of our electronic products is a key aspect of our sustainability programs, and is exemplified by Shaw’s stewardship plan, developed for the province of British Columbia. Our approved Stewardship Plan was prepared in accordance with the requirements set out in the BC Recycling Regulation – Electronic and Electrical Product Category (B.C. Reg. 449/2004), and outlines Shaw’s program for the collection, refurbishing for re-use, resale and recycling of our electronic products covered by the regulations:
