AGE UK Case Study
1st Waste Management (1st Waste) entered into the contract with Help the Aged prior to their amalgamation with Age Concern England. Its key objectives were to consolidate their waste collections and streamline their billing and invoicing, along with reducing their overall costs and increase their ability to recycle. Quite a challenge, but one we were committed to helping them achieve.
Once we had organised their waste collections, ensuring they were receiving the services that they actually required, we then set about reducing their waste by entering into a commercial partnership with a key provider of recycling to the charity sector. Our combined efforts led to Help the Aged (as they were then) reducing their waste costs by almost a third. We also helped them increase their revenue by helping them gain the best prices for their recyclable products. These actions, supported by our waste audit process, all equated to a saving of £143,000+ per annum.
So innovative was our approach to this client that it led us to be nominated for and winning the:-
‘Best Partnership Project for Recycling 2009’.
