Eric Wright FM clean up with B&M Waste’s Carbon Neutral service

Managing a large number of properties across the North West across the public and private sectors, Eric Wright FM is a massively growing facilities management company with sustainability high up on their agenda. The desire to ensure the most environmentally friendly and cost efficient waste management solution for their clients meant a clear alignment with B&M Waste Services, who offer a Carbon Neutral solution tailored towards increasing recycling through segregation of recyclable materials at source, and diverting residual waste from landfill. This month the partnership, which commenced in late 2016 is now celebrating the success of the schemes, having achieved 100% diversion of waste from landfill across the Eric Wright portfolio which it services.

Mick Ashall, Director of B&M Waste Services said “We are always proud of working with forward thinking customers who want to reduce the environmental impact of their waste, and Eric Wright are a great example of this mind-set. We’ve introduced separate bins and collections for paper & card, glass and mixed recycling, which has reduced the general waste which previously went to landfill. All materials are recycled, or in the case of non-recyclable waste, it is 100% diverted from landfill as it is processed at a combined heat and power station which produces heat and power for local homes and businesses.”

Kate Bailey, of Eric Wright FM said “B&M Waste’s values very much align with our efforts to reduce the environmental impact of the buildings we manage. Their Carbon Neutral status means the indirect carbon impact of the waste from these buildings is carbon neutral, which assures both ourselves and our clients that they are working towards a more sustainable status. I’d like to thank our facilities managers and the tenants at the sites for their buy-in of these schemes, aided by B&M’s clear signage, tenants packs and training to ensure everyone is aware of which waste goes where.”

The results of this work together are clear, 100% diversion from landfill and increased recycling of paper, card and glass. The indirect carbon emissions saved through landfill diversion for all waste streams in the first quarter this year equated to 1850kg of carbon; the equivalent of 5 trees or 912 miles in a car.

Across Preston, and the Greater Lancashire region B&M Waste work with a number of clients including UCLan, Preston College, Preston Golf Club and now Eric Wright FM to provide recycling and waste collections which fit with their own working schedules and waste volumes and types. Offering a free waste audit, can your business afford not to contact them and start saving money and the environment?
