Axil announces sustainability-led waste management partnership with Aquapak

Axil Integrated Services has secured a total waste management services deal with Aquapak, the Midlands-based manufacturers of planet-friendly, water-soluble polymer technologies, to manage its recycling and production waste.

Axil is working to make sure Aquapak minimises its CO2 output, production waste and costs, as well as creating bespoke CO2 reports that help to track and prevent the release of pollutants, ensuring that Aquapak meets its ambitious environmental targets. Axil will also improve and streamline Aquapak’s hazardous waste disposal processes, identifying new opportunities to manage its hazardous waste and create a cleaner and safer environment at their Birmingham site.

As the demand for environmentally sustainable material technologies grows, Aquapak is planning to open three more UK production lines, in addition to the two which are already running. Axil will work in partnership with the team at Aquapak, scaling waste management solutions as it grows, to ensure that its waste processes are as effective and sustainable as possible in years to come.

Commenting on the partnership, Jason Lang, Commercial Director at Axil Integrated Services, said: “We are excited to work with such an innovative sustainability-led manufacturer on improving and managing its waste. By producing pioneering biodegradable materials, Aquapak develops planet-friendly material technologies for businesses and consumers across the country, and providing an important link in the circular economy. We are proud to support this mission by reducing Aquapak’s own production waste and helping the team to hit their ambitious targets.”

Diane Tolley, Health & Safety Environmental Manager at Aquapak added: “As producers of sustainable materials, we hold ourselves to the highest standards regarding our own waste and the environmental impact of our production processes. Axil is an expert in total and sustainable waste management, and we are grateful for the support of their team. Axil’s expertise and guidance will be invaluable as we work to slash emissions, efficiently manage waste, and minimise production costs across our site.”

Metro Rod Drainage and Plumbing Survey

With the current economic crisis resulting in higher prices and more of a squeeze on resources, FMs need to ensure that they have robust building and maintenance services in place to control costs and reduce the need for emergency repairs. When it comes to drainage and plumbing there are also the challenges of dealing with extreme weather, from droughts to flooding, the need to meet stringent regulations and to avoid causing environmental damage.

UK drainage specialist, Metro Rod, has launched a survey which explores the main areas of interest for FMs in maintaining drainage and plumbing, including how they currently assess their supply chains to ensure they’re working with partners that meet the highest possible standards and provide value for money.

The results will be published online so that you can see how you compare to others within the sector.

The survey should take just 5-10 minutes of your time, and as a thank you, you will be entered into a prize draw, where one lucky winner will be picked at random to receive a £100 Amazon voucher.
