Designing out waste

Jim McClelland, Senior Consultant for Chelgate, has an article published in the Times this week. The article, Living in a material E-world, addresses the shift in design priorities brought on by factors such as cost, environment and supply pressures.

McClelland discusses how waste will be ‘designed out’; “with strong government leadership, responsible manufacturers and increasing public awareness that recycling is good, but waste prevention better, we can expect to see a shift in direction in the next decade or so”.
