Recycling and waste benchmarking review opens additional recycling
solutions and opportunities to engage pupils and staff in the process
The college has been struggling to embed additional recycling solutions over and
above some of its paper waste despite fundamental awareness of the pupils and
staff to its obligations to improve the planet. The college would like to improve its
recycling rate and work towards becoming a "Zero to Landfill" establishment.
Brockington College engaged the services of Sitemark (formerly i-Clean Systems) to
undertake a Recycling and Waste Review to understand more about the material
they were disposing of and to identify a set of strategies and improved solutions that
could be applied to that material.
Sitemark identified a number of alternative segregation processes that could be
applied to waste created in the college that will be simple to adopt, easy for the
pupils / students to understand and will help improve the recycling rates achieved by
the facility. The solutions are also designed to ensure there is no impact on nonteaching
staff and internal bin configurations are consolidated.
"Through our engagement with Sitemark we can see that there are many
opportunities to create a greener and more sustainable environment without
compromising our cost reduction activities. We now understand all of the processes
used in the end of life solutions through the extensive and unobtrusive investigations
into our recycling and waste streams. We are particularly keen to engage the pupils
and staff with solutions for disposable packaging used at lunchtimes which form a
considerable percentage of the waste created in the college"
