Waste policy

Waste Hierarchy

First and foremost, AW pursues a far-reaching policy of waste prevention and is constantly engaged in looking for efficient solutions for the reuse and recycling of waste. 

Waste that cannot be recycled internally is sent off to be treated by specialized waste processors and is eventually turned into fuel for cement ovens and power stations. 

Within the space of 5 years AW has succeeded in reducing the amount of waste per m² of carpet produced by over 20% through waste prevention and recycling programmes.
