GPT Waste Management Limited is the UK’s leading independent provider of waste management solutions to both the public and private sector.

GPT were contacted by the client following the set-up of a new manufacturing process on site. This resulted in the production of a new waste stream, the exact composition of which was unknown.

Client: Sodexo FM- Pilkington plc
Location: Greengate Works, St Helens
Date: On-going
Sector:   Manufacturing

The requirement was to remove large quantities of up to 13 tonnes of the waste stream, in powder format, from site.

A site visit was undertaken immediately, in order to assess the logistics of the job and also to understand both the process from which the waste was produced and the make- up of the waste.

A sample was taken within 24 hours of the request and sent for analysis by GPT. RoRo containers were discussed but after consideration were deemed to be unsuitable due to the loose nature of the powder and potential problems which could arise during the disbursement of waste around site.

With this in mind, it was decided that tanker collections would provide the optimum method of

collection and prove most cost effective whilst maximising load weights being removed from site.
