Food Manufacturer Renshaws celebrate recycling success with B&M Waste Services

Categories: B&M News

Renshaw recycling logoBritish Food Manufacturer Renshaw, who have over 100 years’ experience in baking and cake decorating products, are this month celebrating the success of their recycling service with B&M Waste Services after achieving 100% diversion of waste from landfill.

James Harris, HSE Manager at Renshaws commented “The company prides itself on having a predominantly local workforce and being the grantee of a Royal Warrant for almond products.

Graham Curtis, Director at B&M Waste Services said “As you would expect from such a high production site, these processes leave behind a considerable amount of waste that needs to be dealt with in a timely, efficient and compliant manner. As with everything else they do, environmental responsibilities are taken very seriously at Renshaw so it was important for their waste management partner to have equally high standards. We praise Renshaw and their staff for their forward thinking approach and buy-in of the new waste strategy we’ve worked on together. I’m sure our close working relationship is the main reason why our partnership has been such a success.”

By working with B&M, Renshaw had chosen a local Carbon Neutral company with proven service levels and a commitment to sustainable waste management. At the start of the contract the service yard at Renshaw was being taken up by old equipment and disjointed waste service provisions.

Renshaw recycling shaking handsB&M installed two new compactors to deal with the volume of general waste and leftover large cardboard items. The cardboard achieves revenue back for the company while the general waste is taken to B&M’s Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) eight miles away on the Wirral where any recyclables are removed before being sent on for processing and 100% recovered as Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF).

Furthermore, B&M provided a number of colour-coded containers to store additional segregated recyclates, such as plastic buckets, and held a number of training sessions for the factory workers to understand their environmental responsibilities. The nut skins leftover from the processes on site are blown directly into a large covered skip and when full this is taken to a local farm and used for composting.

The Results have been significant, with simplified waste collection, storage and recycling services that B&M provides, the result has been zero waste to landfill. With the help of B&M, in 2015 Renshaw diverted 190 tonnes of general waste from landfill, with reduced waste
movements and carbon footprint due to the new compactors achieving maximum payload. Over 120 tonnes of cardboard was recycled and over 70 tonnes of nut skins was used as composting.  The indirect carbon emissions saved through landfill diversion for all waste streams last year equated to 441,818kg of carbon; the equivalent of 582 trees or nearly 3 million miles in a car.
