Liverpool John Moores University appoint B&M Waste Services for Reuse, Recycling and Waste Resource Management Service
Following a rigorous assessment process, B&M Waste Services has secured a three-year contract to implement a total waste resource management solution at Liverpool John Moores University.
LJMU invited tenders for provision of its re-use, recycling and waste resource management services and a key component of the tender was an assessment of a potential service provider’s ability to complement and enhance the University’s sustainability vision.
Terry Milner, Director at B&M Waste Services, said: “We are delighted to be awarded this prestigious contract and look forward to working with all members of the LJMU community to develop innovative waste resource management solutions to help realise their environmental and sustainability vision.
Martin Christie, LJMU’s Environmental Manager, said: “With over 25,000 staff and students, we are a modern civic university aware of our social, economic and environmental responsibilities. The University has had a ‘Zero to Landfill’ policy and waste resource management service for a number of years but we always look for ways to further improve our reuse and recycling rates.
“LJMU is committed to continually seeking ways to reduce its environmental impact. B&M’s monthly environmental reports detailing each building’s waste streams and associated recycling levels will assist us to identify improvement opportunities. We are also pleased that B&M will be servicing university buildings from its local depot in Bromborough. This will reduce service vehicle mileage against our current arrangements reducing LJMU’s carbon footprint and making a contribution to improving the greater environment.”
The contract commenced on 1 August 2015, and B&M Waste is now installing various recycling and waste containers and servicing the University’s compactors currently in situ. Ongoing audits and suggestions for continuous improvements are part and parcel of B&M Waste Services offering and will ensure the consistent progress of the University’s recycling and reduction in carbon footprint.
