Birchwood Shopping Centre has partnered up with B&M Waste Services to develop waste management solutions which are both efficient and environmentally friendly. This has resulted in the awarding of a Green Apple Award for environmental best practice for the shopping centre.
Being environmentally conscious is a high priority at Birchwood Shopping Centre, and the working relationship with B&M Waste Services has enabled the centre to achieve this goal in its entirety. B&M’s pledge to contribute zero waste to landfill was a significant factor in the decision when it came to selecting a new waste management contract. The partnership has enabled significant improvements in waste handling at the centre.
Facilities manager at Birchwood Shopping Centre, Peter Owen, said: “Sustainable waste is a vital component in the running of the centre. One of the reasons we chose B&M Waste was because they are a carbon neutral company and that helps us along with our green credentials. We’re so thrilled to have won this award and I’d like to thank the B&M team as well as my own team at Birchwood for contributing to us winning it.”
Wendy Mitchell, national account manager at B&M Waste Services, said: “We’ve worked with Peter and the team at Birchwood Shopping Centre to assess their waste output, look at potential waste reduction strategies and develop a bespoke solution to increase their recycling credentials. The Birchwood Shopping Centre team have done a fantastic job in improving the green credentials of the centre through the successful implementation of a zero waste to landfill waste management service, which encourages recycling at every opportunity.”
