１. A closer look at 99% waste recycle
Disposal management is a service to properly recycle the waste that comes from demolishing the original office space to the new refurnish work. The movement of waste was tracked until its final disposal site, and the evidence was summarized in the recycle report below.
① We achieved 99% waste recycling by sorting the construction waste disposed of the construction sites by items with the cooperation of waste management providers.
② Regarding the traceability of construction waste, we tracked to the amounts of recycled materials produced at recycling plants.
