B&M Waste Services, a leading and innovative waste management business, has successfully completed the new Publicly Available Specification 402 (PAS 402:2013) – making it one of the most responsible waste resource management organisations within the country.
PAS 402:2013 specifies requirements for performance reporting by a waste resource management organisation. Since the waste industry is constantly evolving, it has recognised the potential opportunities to be gained from recovering the resource in waste and recognising it as a valuable resource in itself.
Performance is assessed by a third party against key areas of delivery including:
Assuring potential and existing customers of the service they are procuring i.e. how it conducts specific waste resource management activities.
Landfill diversion and materials recovery.
B&M Waste Services has been externally assessed against the PAS by Carbon Footprint Ltd, the sustainability experts.
Katie Elmer, Senior Sustainability Consultant at Carbon Footprint Ltd who completed the assessment explained,
‘All B&M’s processes and documents were found to be compliant- meaning they are now part of an elite group of waste management businesses in the UK.’
As part of the PAS 402 process, B&M Waste Services will be assessed annually to assure their continued aligned with the standard and to gauge their continuous improvement.
An innovator in the waste management sector, B&M is committed to best practice in sustainability to the highest standards. They have been measuring their carbon footprint since 2008 and are also carbon neutral to PAS 2060 requirements.
Mick Ashall, Director concluded,
‘We are committed to processes that can reduce waste, identify and implement processes to recover and reuse it. As well as reducing costs and carbon PAS 402 will make sure that valuable resources are retained.’
