UKWSL wins new contract with Azzurri Group

UKWSL has been appointed the waste and recycling contractor of choice by Azzurri Group, following a formal tender process in 2017. 

The three-year contract, worth £1 million per annum, sees UKWSL take control of general waste, mixed recycling, food waste and glass recycling at 182 of Azzurri Group’s sites nationwide. Operations get underway on 1 April 2018.

Azzurri Group is seeking to increase its recycling rates and, with UKWSL’s help, is targeting a minimum 80 per cent on-site recycling rate across the estate. UKWSL has also been tasked with diverting 99 per cent of the Group’s waste away from landfill.

Richard Galbraith, Azzurri Group’s Distribution Manager commented: “Azzurri Group has made good progress over the last three years, driving recycling at restaurant level within ASK Italian and Zizzi and putting waste management on to the agenda of every member of staff.  The current position is a strong one, so the tender was focussed on finding a partner that would take the initiative in getting Azzurri to the next level of recycling and help undertake waste reduction projects.  UKWSL has committed to a program of Ops engagement which will push on-site recycling as far as it can go, and the analytical tools and experience they offer will be invaluable to Azzurri’s plans to improve its environmental position.”    

Roland Archer, Sales Director at UKWSL, added: “We are extremely proud to add Azzurri Group to our list of clients and are already busy preparing the ground for contract commencement in two months’ time. We have some ambitious plans around optimising and rationalising Azzurri Group’s waste and recycling services and are looking forward to working in close co-operation with their employees at every level.”

Azzurri Group joins Marston’s and Roadchef in UKWSL’s expanding portfolio of hospitality clients.
