Merseytravel provides professional, strategic and operational transport advice to the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority and is the delivery arm making transport happen. B&M has worked in partnership with Merseytravel since 2011 to introduce recycling initiatives.
A significant number of people use Merseytravel sites every year and with a high footfall comes a high level of waste. Merseytravel have always been receptive to the concept of recycling and B&M have assisted them to further increase this through educating both staff and the general public as to the importance of waste segregation.
Working with recycling-led B&M Waste Services means Merseytravel will strive to further increase recycling levels and divert waste away from landfill. Introducing recycling, glass and general waste bins at the tunnels, bus stations and ferry terminals will further encourage recycling at these sites.
Secure shredding is required for any confidential waste and this can be achieved using a console scheduled service. B&M will also provide a bag collection service for paper and media, and undertake any clearances as and when they require it.
By working together with B&M, Merseytravel have diverted over 250 tons of waste from landfill in 2020 alone and have introduced the segregation of paper and cardboard, food and glass waste over their 30+ sites around Liverpool.
Tom Ellis, Senior Officer for Buildings and Estates at Merseytravel said: “Merseytravel’s commitment to sustainability and working with local suppliers to provide cost effective and environmentally friendly solutions, means B&M Waste Services fits the bill. B&M is carbon neutral and the team’s enthusiasm and commitment to offering the latest solutions over the past few years has meant working with them has been refreshing. Their plans to boost recycling through the introduction of separate bins for paper and card, glass and general waste, as well as utilising energy from waste power plants as opposed to landfill, means we are delighted to continue working with them.”
