The issue.

Savills were using multiple suppliers across the estate to collect waste, with a non-uniform approach.

As a result of the fragmented approach, Savills had low visibility of their processes, total spend on waste or levels of recycling and recovery figures.

The solution.

Rather than tender their existing services and only enjoy a unit rate improvement, Savills engaged with us to develop a strategy to achieve zero to landfill by the end of 2016.

We delivered a uniformed approach to invoicing all waste services and provided central reporting on recycling figures and waste spend. This approach was cost-neutral.

For continuous improvement plans and cost reduction, we provide Savills with dedicated account management who focus on delivering recycling-led solutions.

Our rationalisation programme saw a reduction in some 93 separate collections companies down to 42.

The results.

litter bin 99.1% Diversion from landfill
money £333k Cost savings delivered in first two years
Collection success rate 99.9% Service success delivered
