The Core divert 90% from Landfill

Categories: B&M News

The Core Shopping Centre LeedsThis month The Core Shopping Centre in Leeds is celebrating their achievement of diverting 90% of waste produced from landfill in partnership with B&M Waste Services.

In 2015 Carbon Neutral B&M Waste Services were appointed to improve The Core’s waste management efficiencies. Recycling-led B&M offer customers an initial site audit to determine current practices, and then suggest changes which will improve recycling and reduce frequency of collections, which subsequently reduces the cost of the service.

The audit at The Core was completed and B&M identified that, being a shopping centre, there was a large amount of dry mixed recyclables such as packaging. Additionally, due to the number of restaurants and cafes on site there was a significant quantity of food waste, which was being placed in general waste containers so wasn’t being recycled. This was also causing a health and safety problem of very heavy bins.

A mix of equipment and segregation solutions as well as more adequate signage and training for cleaning staff has seen recycling levels increase significantly. This is a perfect fit with the sustainability agenda of the shopping centre.

Denise Jeffery, Centre Manager at The Core Shopping Centre, said “We have always worked hard to segregate and recycle waste, but with help and the latest innovations from B&M Waste we have begun to recycle more than we thought possible. They are friendly, reliable and competitively priced, and we now achieve 90% diversion from landfill for our waste.”

Mick Ashall, Director at B&M Waste Services said “The Core have been very forward thinking in their approach to introducing a sustainable waste management solution which is easy to understand and simple for cleaning staff, tenants and patrons alike. The introduction of segregation, in particular cardboard has boosted recycling efficiencies and have saved the equivalent to 19 trees in terms of carbon impact on the environment over the last 12 months. The introduction of the latest equipment will further improve this over the coming year.
