Benchmarking Review leads to improved recycling and waste strategies
Having achieved some excellent recycling rates and found some additional
solutions Buzzacott were looking to move to the next level of the waste hierarchy
and identify further improvements in their recycling and waste processes and
protocols in their office facility in London's square mile.
Given the restrictions and issues caused by a lack of space and retaining control of
costs the organisation was looking for innovation and advice around the existing
recycling and waste service.
Buzzacott engaged Sitemark to undertake a recycling and waste
benchmarking review that would report on all aspects of recycling and activity
across the facility. This included a review of the current service provision, processes
and console configurations within the building.
Through a benchmarking review which examined every aspect of the recycling and
waste processes and protocols across the Wood Street building, including all costs,
waste streams and end of life solutions, Buzzacott were able to consolidate on their
As part of their report Sitemark were able to produce a list of 15 innovative
next step strategies and solutions that will help the organisation move up the waste
hierarchy. These strategies were bespoke to the building and the people working or
visiting the environment; they took account of the space issues that many central
London companies face and ranged from quick win solutions to others that need a
more long-term approach. They were designed to: increase recycling; drive costs
down where appropriate; help the organisation embrace the circular economy and
reduce the carbon footprint of the building.
"Working with the recycling and waste division of Sitemark ensured that our
recycling and waste activity and data was reviewed by an external and independent
advisor. The benchmarking review strengthened our confidence in our own
statistical information and confirmed that we have been adopting appropriate
solutions. The process also opened our minds to additional, relatively easy to
implement solutions whilst further embedding recycling in our office culture. A 100%
recycling process is now an achievable vision for our organisation"
