Hugh Baird College achieves over 95% recycling levels with B&M Waste Service
Hugh Baird College can be found in Bootle Liverpool delivering over 300 courses to more than 5,000 students, they offer a range of apprenticeships, university level courses and courses from entry level to level 3 qualifications.
Providing quality facilities for 5,000 pupils creates a range of commercial waste that needs segregating and recycling. B&M Waste Services are working with Hugh Baird College to assist in this, firstly by assessing the current segregation procedures and suggesting improvements. B&M Waste Services then introduced several new bins to the college including dry mixed recycling (DMR), glass, food and general waste. Full training and advice is given to staff and pupils on how to maximise segregation this includes over bin posters, providing information on what waste goes in the bin.
Each bin has a separate recycling plant to maximise the potential, even the general waste is now taken to an RDF facility rather than to landfill. The RDF facility is based in Manchester where it is baled and sent to a combined heat and power plant where it is then converted to energy for the local area.
Each recycling process is recorded on the B&M Waste Services environmental report, Hugh Baird College can then see exactly where their waste has gone and how much they have recycled on this report.
Hugh Baird College have now achieved 95.12% in their recycling levels through the help from B&M Waste Services and segregating their trade waste more efficiently.
