The issue.

Savills were using multiple suppliers across the estate to collect waste, with an inconsistent approach.

As a result of the fragmented service delivery Savills had limited visibility of their processes, overall spend on waste and recycling data.

The solution.

Rather than tender their existing services and only enjoy a unit rate improvement, Savills engaged with us to develop a strategy to reduce waste and manage costs.

We developed a uniformed approach to invoicing all waste and recycling services whilst providing central reporting on recycling rates and waste spend. This approach was cost-neutral.

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

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

The results.

litter bin 99.5%+   Diversion from landfill
money £333k Cost savings delivered in first two years
Collection success rate 99.9% Service success delivered
