110 Bishopsgate are celebrating the recycling success of their waste management programme after achieving 89% recycling figures.
B&M Waste Services were invited to work with 110 Bishopsgate, the third largest building in Greater London, after offering a complete waste management strategy, including the recycling of food, glass and mixed recyclables.
B&M focused on the segregation of recyclables and installed compactors on-site which reduced the number of collections and increased efficiency in the service area. Food waste is now sent to Anaerobic Digestion – an environmentally friendly solution – three times a week.
Innovative technologies have also been introduced to further improve service to the building. Industrial scales now weigh each tenant’s waste, allowing individual tenants within the building to be invoiced more efficiently.
This recycling success and increased figures have resulted in monthly carbon savings equivalent to 17,000 car miles for the building.
Alex Hardingham, Facilities Manager at 110 Bishopsgate, said: “Working with B&M Waste Services has improved our environmental performance as well as assisting us in making the best use of the limited space in our service area.
“We have regular contact from our account manager and any issues, of which there are few, are dealt with quickly and efficiently.
“We have total confidence that we are receiving the best value service with a reputable and recycling-focused supplier who understands the needs of our business and acts professionally to alleviate the worry out of our waste management.”
Wendy Mitchell, of B&M Waste Services, said: “We are delighted with the success of our partnership with 110 Bishopsgate and Cushman & Wakefield.
“We provide bespoke monthly environmental reporting, endorsed by Carbon Footprint Ltd, which details the recycling rates and carbon savings achieved.
“The recycling results achieved so far are fantastic and, with a focus on continuous improvement, we aim to continue to increase the level of recycling over the coming months”.
