B&M Waste Services have partnered up with University College Birmingham to help the firm to segregate and recycle as much waste as possible.
University College Birmingham boasts 7,500 students studying a vast range of different courses, and last year celebrated the 50th anniversary of the opening of its Birmingham College of Food and Domestic Arts, which opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh.
The further and higher education provider will work with the waste management company, with offices across the country, to boost sustainability and the college’s environmental policy.
Nick Reader, facilities and operations manager at UCB, expressed his delight with the partnership and outlined the university’s ongoing sustainability and environment policy goals.
Nick said: “The partnership we’re going to have with B&M moving forwards is all the things we’ve been looking for, for quite a while.
“We are currently trying to attain eco-campus status, and by working with B&M we will achieve this in a very short time I’m sure”.
Area sales manager at B&M Waste in Birmingham, Sean Sudworth, discussed his thoughts on the upcoming partnership with UCB: “We are very excited to be working alongside a big prestigious name like UCB.
“It’s a great project to be involved in as it’s essentially a blank canvas to work with to improve the waste management within the university, where we will be able to reduce recycling as well as lowering the costs incurred by the university”.
