Food waste service solution

THE PROJECT

In partnership with Sodexo Defence, GPT Waste delivers waste services to 11 MOD establishments on contract. The most recent project is to see service improvements across establishments that produce food waste. It is estimated that the volume of food waste that is to be recycled is over 200 tonnes per annum.

CHALLENGE

The first challenge was to ensure that every site and every representative of the sites is aware of how and what food waste service provision entails and issues that arise from contaminating the waste.

Cost Saving
Improved Efficiency
Increased Recycling Knowledges
National Reach

SOLUTION

The food waste is removed and treated at an anaerobic digestion facility – all 100% recycled so the importance of ensuring each site operates to the required level is paramount to Sodexo and GPT Waste.

Prior to the roll out of GPT Waste’s services, we held internal events to promote new service, provided bin signage and service notes for each site. This indicated what can go in what bin – ultimately improving waste management practices. 

This service was across all sites and is now in place and operational.

RESULTS

The GPT Waste business model utilises both regional and national providers maximising the use of MRFs across the UK. It also allows for quick resolution across all sites if issues arise. This food service solution allows for flexibility, cost savings and best recycling practices across all sites for the client.
