Reducing waste at a leading international FMCG company

By working in partnership with, and providing on-site management to the teams, we have been able to coordinate the movements of waste and maximise the recycling opportunities which have in turn maximised the rebates achieved. This in turn has helped them move up the waste hierarchy, achieving zero waste to landfill on all non-hazardous waste. This in itself is a great indication of them working towards being more sustainable.

Background

Mitie provides this large, international fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) company with a total waste management service across 29 locations. This includes 16 manufacturing sites, of which 6 are food manufacturers, and all produce critical waste streams that must be collected on time to ensure no downtime in the manufacturing process.

What was their waste situation?

This leader in the fast moving consumer goods space was looking for a waste provider to tackle the total waste management across their portfolio of sites, including: bulk tanker case, hazardous drummed and packaged waste, general waste, mixed recycling, confidential waste and secure destruction of off-spec products.

How did we help?

By working in partnership with, and providing on-site management to the teams, we have been able to coordinate the movements of waste and maximise the recycling opportunities which have in turn maximised the rebates achieved. This in turn has helped them move up the waste hierarchy, achieving zero waste to landfill on all non-hazardous waste. This in itself is a great indication of them working towards being more sustainable.

Mitie Waste and Environmental also apply the notion of the circular economy where possible.
