UKWSL has renewed its waste and recycling services contract with motorway service area operator, Roadchef.
The new five-year contract, worth £4.5 million, sees UKWSL in charge of Roadchef’s waste and recycling services at 22 of its key sites.
UKSWL started working with Roadchef in 2015 and during that time has delivered both financial and environmental results. In the past five months alone, UKWSL has affected a reduction in spend of over £50,000 for Roadchef, its total saving aspiration for the entire year. The past two years have also seen a reduction in the use of on-site compactor machines. Previously machines were operated on a standard weekly run but following expert analysis by UKWSL, it was discovered that fortnightly runs would suffice for the majority of Roadchef sites, the majority of the time, minimising the environmental impact by reducing the associated carbon footprint of vehicle operations.
UKWSL has been further rewarded in the trial expansion of its remit to include grounds maintenance in addition to the traditional waste and recycling services. These trial operations see UKWSL using the coffee grounds from its three internal composters to fertilise the grounds of the service areas.
Max Kanda, Managing Director of UKWSL, commented: “After a very successful couple of years, we are delighted to be partnering with Roadchef once more and have in place an ambitious plan to further increase their recycling rates and reduce their waste to landfill. Our working relationship has been exemplary to date and we feel confident that this collaborative approach will serve us well as we expand the range of services we provide.”
