Being Environmentally Conscientious

At Celtic Fish & Game we are committed to doing as much as we can to reduce our carbon footprint and we also aim to help you to reduce yours. We have looked in detail at what we do, especially the waste we produce and have taken huge steps to reducing this.

The main waste we produce can be broken down into cardboard, paper, polystyrene, fish and meat waste.

The cardboard waste is compacted using a “Miltek” baler using low energy consumption. A waste management company then collect all cardboard bales and paper waste.

The polystyrene is melted to reduce it to it’s smallest possible volumes using a machine called “Styromelt”.

Fish waste is collected by a local company.

Meat waste is collected by the PDM Group. The waste is taken away and burned in combustion plants designed to generate renewable electricity as well as heat to satisfy local heating or industrial demand.

By processing all our waste we have reduced our waste going to landfill by over 83%. We now deliver all our products in returnable plastic boxes, reducing both our waste and yours.

We can extend these waste management services to help you the customer. Any polystyrene boxes we deliver your fish in we will collect. All we ask is that you keep them as clean and dry as possible and our drivers will be happy to collect them.

We also have a policy whereby our vans leave the factory full and return full. They deliver your goods on their outward journey and collect our stock on their inbound journey. We also source locally where possible which helps to keep the food miles to a minimum. This reduces fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
