Grand Central Stockport Case Study

B&M Grand Central Case studyThe Client

CBRE required a waste services provider as part of their facilities management for Stockport Council’s site at Grand Central Stockport, a retail, entertainment and leisure complex in Greater Manchester. B&M. Stockport Council purchased the site in 2011 for a regeneration scheme valued at approximately £145m. B&M Waste Services were asked by CBRE to provide the waste service after offering to introduce recycling as part of the waste management initiative.

The Project

Prior to working with B&M, Grand Central sent all their waste to landfill. B&M initially worked to conduct a full site audit to determine the amount and types of waste currently being produced. From this, B&M implemented 12 x 1100 ltr General Waste bins and 6 x 1100 ltr Cardboard bins, collected six times per week. In addition, internal bins were implemented for paper, plastic bottles and drinks cans.

A regular collection service began and waste was delivered to B&M’s Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) in Trafford Park where contents are weighed and sorted. Residual waste is then processed at B&M’s Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF) facility and sent to an RDF fuel plant to generate green energy in the form of steam and electricity for district heating. The emissions of this are far lower than the carbon emission and environmental impact of landfill.

Initially, recycling levels did increase and Carbon Footprint impact was reduced. The recycling rate was quite high and it quickly became apparent that there was further segregation opportunities. To reduce waste costs, B&M helped to tailor the service specifically to Grand Central by introducing separate glass and food recycling.  The introduction of new waste streams meant that the number of General Waste bins on-site were reduced and recycling levels further improved.


The impact on the environment is closely monitored by B&M working in partnership with Carbon Footprint Limited, who have accredited B&M as Carbon Neutral since 2011. B&M supply a bespoke, monthly environmental report detailing the landfill diversion performance of the site, the amount of material reused for RDF, the amount of carbon saved in Kgs and the equivalent number of trees and car miles.

B&M also implemented guidance posters, stickers and literature for the tenants at the site to encourage segregation at source through training and information. New information was also distributed when the second phase of adding glass and food recycling.

The Results

The overall result has been a move at Grand Central from no recycling at all prior to working with B&M Waste Services, to 85.7% overall recycled in 2013. This has saved 42,796kg of Carbon which is equivalent to 36 trees, or 9298 car miles in 2013. With the introduction of B&M’s own RDF facility in 2014, recycling levels are now at 100%.
