North Lincolnshire Council
In April 2020, North Lincolnshire Council brought all of its waste collection services back in-house. As part of this initiative, the Council wanted to identify the most sustainable and cost-effective methods for collecting, transporting, storing, processing, and marketing up to 25,000 tonnes per annum of recyclable materials.
Wastewise was able to offer the Council a simple and reliable bulk collection and brokerage solution for various materials, including metal cans and tins, paper, glass, and other mixed recyclables. Our solution not only provides the Council with a guaranteed offtake at the most competitive market rates, but it also enables the Council to maximise the use of its own resources and facilities.
This new way of working with Wastewise has enabled the Council to optimise its waste collection service, ensure high quality materials for recycling and deliver significant cost savings whilst maintaining its exceptional recycling rate of over 55%.
``Wastewise was the only supplier that could offer a complete solution at very short notice. They were very responsive and are providing a flexible and reliable service to meet the Council’s requirements``
