BM TRADA client, Simply Waste Solutions, have been named as the winners of The Waitrose Way - Treading Lightly Award for Waste Reduction.
A proud moment and massive achievement for Simply Waste. Working to beat tough targets, Simply Waste, the John Lewis Partnership and other work partners have together achieved a 95% diversion from landfill across the board through minimising waste, rationalising services and using the cleanest and greenest disposal methods.
One of the most recent initiatives saw them implement bespoke recycling management systems into the JLP Head Office, including on-site operatives that ensure the highest level of recycling is achieved through intense sorting of the waste materials. The Partnership has also become a founder member of the Simply Waste initiative, the Simply Cups recycling scheme. Coffee Cup recycling will be added to the list of individual waste streams that the Head Office is separating to ensure that the highest level of recycling is attained.

"Investment into both our vehicle fleet and back office systems enable our customers to transform the way they behave about waste. It provides them with a direct incentive to cut waste streams across their business because if they throw less, they pay less." James Capel, Managing Director.
