ATM Annual Report 2013 - 2014

A word from the board

Steady growth of a successful company


In the fiscal year 2013/2014, ATM surpassed its good performances of the previous years. In a market that, for some time now, has been affeted by economic setbacks, this result is significant. With a solid market position, a safe and transparent operation and a focus on people and society we will continue to work on further growth in the years to come.

Risk management


Working with hazardous waste comes with risks. We minimise those risks with extensive monitoring systems and technical and organisational improvements. ATM has a department that monitors and improves the safety within the company. In the past fiscal year, we took steps to fall under the BRZO regime (Decree on Major Accident Hazards). We paid special attention to fire safety.

In the past fiscal year our safety officers engaged in dialogue with arriving lorry drivers in order to draw extra attention to the ADR regulations. The ADR is part of the Dutch VLG (Regulation for the Land Transport of Hazardous Substances). The primary purpose of the ADR gate campaign was not to look for violations, but to raise ADR awareness. The lorry drivers were questioned whilst enjoying hot chocolate and a hot dog. The gate campaign was a huge success: the drivers appreciated the initiative and ATM in turn is very positive about the driver’s knowledge of ADR. All the ADR lorries checked that day complied with the regulations.

New foam-extinguishing system for tank pits One of the fire scenarios that may occur at ATM is a tank pit fire. We can prevent or control this scenario by using stationary fire extinguishing agents. This is why we installed a new foam-extinguishing system in our tank pits in the past fiscal year. This new system enables us to cover the tank pits with a layer of foam with one remote touch of the button. The first tests have been carried out since and we consider this a very positive sign. This system ensures that a complete tank pit fire is no longer a realistic scenario.

ATM Annual Report 2013 - 2014


We are working towards a cleaner living environment. Because 95% of all the waste we process we make suitable for reuse again. In a safe working environment, we work with 200 employees to process this waste. Many colleagues, therefore, live in the surrounding area of ATM. Moreover, we try to purchase locally as much as possible. Apart from our contribution to a cleaner living environment, regional employment and the regional economy, we also want to make a contribution to our surrounding area.

All thumbs up for ATM

ATM donates eight new computers to primary school De Klaverhoek in Moerdijk

Primary school De Klaverhoek in Moerdijk welcomes waste processing company ATM, located on the Moerdijk industrial estate. In the past fiscal year, ATM director Jacques de Jong gave them eight new computers as a gift. Head teacher Jack Boomaars did not hide his joy when presented with them. ‘All thumbs up for ATM, please,’ he asked the pupils. ‘These new computers come in very handy, because we have had to do with a decrease of funds the past years due to a drop in the number of pupils,’ says Boomaars. ATM director Jacques de Jong emphasises that ATM is ‘committed to the entire municipality of Moerdijk, but to the village of Moerdijk in particular.’ For many years now this has been reflected in ATM supporting various social initiatives in the region with which the company wishes to emphasise its local involvement and goodwill. ‘Because over 20 percent of our employees live in the municipality of Moerdijk,’ says Jacques de Jong. ‘A colleague of mine who lives in the village of Moerdijk told me that the primary school desperately needed new computers. With this social investment we hope to make a useful contribution to the development of the local children and perhaps this will lead to an internship or job at ATM in the future...’

Client and market

Providing total care to clients at home and abroad


ATM is active in various markets which may differ considerably with respect to composition and dynamics. However, the tendency towards a more international market is increasingly apparent. When it comes to clients, transparency and trust are more than just words; they constitute the starting point and finishing point of every contact.

ATM wants to provide total care to its clients. With Total Care, ATM can mean a lot more to large industrial companies by taking cleaning, transport and waste management off their hands. Total Care is a comprehensive service package offered by ATM in collaboration with other Shanks companies. Thanks to this unique collaboration, we offer an integral project approach with one designated point of contact. One total solution. Total Care was launched last year during a two-day kick-off event, where the CEO of Shanks Group plc also delivered a speech. To promote it, we sent potential TC clients a USB hub which led them to the Total Care website. We also distributed a new Total Care brochure. Within the organisation we have developed a more solid consultation structure between the collaborating Shanks companies, both on a regional and a national level. Although we have not yet carried out official measurements, the responses of the clients show us that the targeted actions are starting to pay off.

Say goodbye to paper invoices! At ATM we work towards a further sustainable society every day by processing waste into new raw materials. However, it is our aim to make all our company processes socially responsible, such as our records.

A green leap forward As one of the largest waste processing companies, we send approximately 20,000 paper invoices a year. With all this paper, these toners, printers, etc, we still harm the environment. That is why our clients can, as of the beginning of October, opt to receive their invoices digitally.

Tidy accounts Clients who opt for e-invoicing of ATM not only opt for a tidier world, but also for tidier accounting. Because in addition to the fact that invoices do not have to be printed, sent by post and subsequently processed in the paper records of the client, it also saves valuable time. Digital sending and archiving, it is as simple as that.

Launch In collaboration with Hét Reclamebureau Enzo, ATM launched the e-invoicing in a funny way in October by sending mailboxes containing a page of scrunched up paper and the above information. Now already 73 percent of the invoices are sent digitally.

ATM Annual Report 2013 - 2014


We showed an extremely good financial result which gives us great confidence for the future. There is scope for investments, allowing us to develop our activities with respect to both quantity and quality. This involves good cost management, insight into relevant data and a well-stocked portfolio. In short: ATM is a healthy company.

accreditation council held up a mirror to us: why be so timid? ATM is a unique company and you should be proud of it.

It might seem somewhat strange for a waste-processing company, but ATM’s windows and doors are wide open. ‘Openness and transparency’ is the company’s motto.
