Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce & Industry (HCCI) is delighted to have been awarded the contract to manage the EASTEX Materials Exchange for Hertfordshire, through their Hatfield office.

EASTEX materials exchange actively exploits the principle that one organisation's waste is another's raw material. Its a real opportunity to examine the way we source and dispose of material.

HCCI is keen to work with businesses and organisations across the county to create an environmental pledge, to reduce their carbon footprint. By identifying energy efficiencies and reduce the waste going into landfill, HCCI wants to help businesses reduce landfill tax.

For further information on this free service, please call project manager Yolanda Rugg , or John Longland, project co-ordinator on 01707 398400, or email johnlongland@hertschamber.com.
