West Sussex companies that save old products from landfill are being sought for a new research study by the University of Chichester and West Sussex County Council.
There has been a recent growth in businesses increasing the life span of products by refurbishing, remanufacturing or recycling them for future use. The cost of landfill, pressure to recycle and the current economic situation means that companies and the general public are becoming conscious of the replacement and disposal of products.
Now the University and County Council, on behalf of the West Sussex Environment and Climate Change Board, want to hear from businesses operating in the Maintain, Mend and Pass-On sector, allowing them to map the size and scope of the field. This will then mean greater business support can be offered to them.
Dr David Cooper, who is leading the project, has said: ''We want these businesses to get in touch with us, give us a short summary of what they do, allowing us to build up an accurate picture of the county in relation to these businesses and their practices."
Businesses should their information to Stephen Utton at the University of Chichester by either emailing or phoning using the contact information provided.
