- The five-year contract includes cleaning and waste management services
- Sustainability is a core element of the contract, with the introduction of an electric vehicle and new recycling initiatives
Mitie has secured a five-year contract with Fife College, with the option to extend for a further three years. The contract includes the provision of cleaning and waste management services.
Mitie will undertake a range of cleaning services across five of Fife College’s main sites. As part of Mitie and Fife College’s sustainability initiatives, environmentally friendly cleaning products will be used on the contract, conducive to 100% biodegradability. Further to this, Mitie will be introducing one of its first electric vehicles to the contract, allowing for zero carbon emissions on travel between the five sites.
As part of the waste management contract, Mitie will agree new recycling targets with Fife College and review avenues for change to increase the amount of material being recycled. Mitie will focus on reducing the amount of single use plastics and packaging at the site by introducing compostable materials at catering facilities and re-evaluating the current recycling facilities to allow for greater capacity.
Together with Mitie’s supply partners, the contract will establish community partnerships, designed to support local charities and foodbanks, underpinning the College’s commitment to sustainability.
Matthew Thompson, Managing Director, Cleaning & Environmental Services, Mitie, said:
“We are proud to be expanding our long-term partnership with Fife College, to incorporate a range of eco-initiatives which support Fife College’s reduce, reuse, and recycle ethos. We are excited to add our waste management expertise to the contract as we continue to support the College in minimising its environmental impact.”
