Recycling and Waste Benchmarking Review identifies multiple opportunities across the Royal Veterinary College building portfolio
The college has two sites located in London and The South East and employs numerous providers; it was looking for opportunities to consolidate the provision over its wide range of recycling and waste streams, and to identify improved solutions for the material being discarded on a regular basis.
Sitemark was commissioned to undertake a benchmarking review that incorporated both facilities, investigating all recycling and waste categories and evaluating the way in which each was managed, from the moment material was produced, to its end of life solution. This included an inspection of all consoles, analysis of scheduled collections, and examination of costs associated with the removals.
Sitemark, through their processes and measurements, identified cost savings amounting to just over 25% of the commercial / household removal budgets, and opportunities to increase the volume of materials recycled on a regular basis. Through the benchmarking element of the review they also identified areas where the organisation can look in the future to obtain improved market rates for services.
"Working with Sitemark who were recommended by others in the higher education sector, we were able to put a project plan in place that would enable us to make clear knowledge-based decisions in the future regarding recycling and waste strategies. We now have the ability to start managing our processes and requirements with additional strategies provided by Sitemark."
