In 2011, Wastewise undertook a comprehensive waste audit for Swift Group which identified several opportunities to simplify processes, improve recycling rates and generate cost savings. These included:
- Separation and re-classification of waste at source;
- Installation of waste compaction equipment to increase bin weights and halve the number of collections; and
- Baling and briquetting of recyclables to generate value from waste.
Through these and other improvements, Wastewise identified potential cost savings of nearly 40% whilst maximising recycling and recovery rates. After careful consideration, Swift awarded the Total Waste Management contract to Wastewise for circa 5,000 tonnes of waste per annum.
Now in our eighth successful year of working together, Wastewise continues to provide Swift Group with a professional, friendly and reliable service. Our ‘one-stop shop’ solution, which is tailored to the unique needs of the customer, gives Swift full confidence that their waste is being managed in the most compliant, sustainable and cost-effective manner, enabling them to focus on what they do best.
