Network Waste’s work with the Mears Group has led to Mears Scotland increasing its recycling rates on its North Lanarkshire contract, reducing its carbon footprint and making significant financial savings at its Motherwell waste operation. In the past year the amount of waste diverted from landfill by Mears employees has increased to an impressive 98 per cent.
The secret of Network Waste’s success is its innovative waste and recycling reports and its 24-hour duty of care online.
The company, based at King’s Lynn in Norfolk, is a pioneer of real time online waste reporting. Mears’ Supply Chain Manager Colin Erskine said: “Network Waste’s waste reporting mechanism is exceptional. The fact that we have the ability to view skip movements, waste tonnage figures and the attributed costs for our waste streams is key to the success of this facility.”
As part of this work, an innovative new machine is helping North Lanarkshire Council recycle unwanted paint which would normally go to waste.
