  Hafele Australia
   
  Renowned for their innovative hardware and unsurpassed quality
   
  At Hafele Australia we endeavor to minimise waste and maximise recycling in an effort to reduce landfill.

We do this by;

Continually monitoring the use of resources within our operations and production process;

Reviewing production processes to ensure that excessive consumption and waste of production raw materials are identified and processes implemented to minimise excessive waste;

Where possible utilise by-products or waste from production in other areas or business activities
(for example: damaged particle board from the drawer line used as packaging materials for painted doors)

Ensure that production raw material wastage (such as aluminum, acrylic, cardboard) are recycled and not disposed of in landfill;

Where practicable, and efficient, use the most environmentally friendly form of consumables for packing (for example: maximise the use of cardboard rather than plastic);

Utilise recycling agencies for the disposal of paper, printer/copier cartridges etc.

Hafele will ensure that any waste that can not be reused or recycling is disposed of in a way which minimises any impact on the environment and conforms to all relevant regulatory requirements.
