The Glasgow-based resource recovery expert has won a contract to manage the waste and recycling for 94 sites managed by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) including some of the country’s oldest landmarks such as Edinburgh, Urquhart and Stirling Castles.
Enva will provide environmentally and commercially sustainable solutions for over 60 different waste streams and play an important role in helping HES to meet its Climate Action Plan Targets through effective waste management. These include 70 per cent recycling by 2025 and no more than five per cent to landfill, reducing food waste by 33 per cent by 2025, and achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2045.
As part of the contract Enva will also deliver major improvements to the availability of waste data and management information. This will provide a much clearer overview of how waste is being managed across the estate. It will also help to identify areas where material can be moved up the waste hierarchy to realise improved environmental and financial value.
Commenting on the contract award Enva’s Sales Director, Stephen Cameron, said: “We look forward to partnering with HES to deliver a best-in-class resource management performance. This will be achieved through continual assessment of the waste being produced and the services provided. Wherever possible we will seek to introduce innovation to increase the range and volume of materials being recycled and made available for use in the circular economy. I am confident our hugely experienced account management team will continue to deliver efficiencies and support HES in meeting their admirable Climate Action Plan targets.”
