The Club Company
We have just entered our third year with 1st Waste Management. A mark of my confidence is that the renewal process took about 10 minutes! Having benchmarked pricing a couple of months before renewal, I knew that pricing was competitive. Mike Drew our account manager, is always willing to resolve any service issues and has helped us achieve savings in our quest towards greater recycling. It has also been a great advantage to have all 10 of our UK sites on the same contract.
OXFAM GB was with a national waste contractor and was experiencing problems with its collections, both general waste and recycling. 1st Waste Management was awarded the contract and within the first year had successfully moved all 700+ stores to the new process and eradicated many of these operational problems. They gave us at Oxfam visibility of our recycling issues and with the use of their specialist audit process helped us to reduce our costs in the first year by 20%.This has continued into Year 2 with more improvements and savings further reducing our costs by a further 12%. 1st Waste Management have been able to help our staff at OXFAM GB understand our own internal waste policy and process by regular training sessions with our shop managers throughout the UK. 1st Waste Management are now working directly with us and our suppliers to enable OXFAM to focus on landfill reduction aligned with our overall Environmental Organisational Strategy.

“I was getting frustrated with our clinical waste contractor who had let me down again two days before Christmas when we were left with no sharps bins. Without any consultation, I was expected to last for an extra fortnight with no pick up/drop off, I rang to complain but was told that everyone had finished for the Christmas break. I then had to borrow sharps bins from our local hospital to see us over the holidays… I was furious and vowed that I would be looking elsewhere! In the meantime Gemma from 1st Waste had sent an enquiry so I arranged a meeting. I was impressed that 1st Waste could take control of all our waste management needs for clinical, general, recycling and confidential waste and save us a significant amount of money at the same time. None of the other suppliers could cover everything and save as much on cost. It is great only having one point of contact and knowing that 1st Waste can take care of all our needs.
