Leisure Case Study

Improvement in Recycling Rates About the Project:

Project Challenges:

The Brighton Centre is a world renowned Conference and Concert Venue and hosts high profile events such as Political Party Conferences, Indoor Sporting Events and large music concerts.

A Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) has been sourced enabling all the General Mixed Waste from the venue to be subjected to a recycling programme ensuring that the maximum amount of waste is recycled.

GPT were asked to review the waste provision at the site following continual issues with service, poor recycling rates of less than 30% and a general lack of management information.

This has resulted in an overall recycling rate for the site of over 98%, which is a significant increase on the 30% rate being reported by the previous supplier. In addition, regular monthly recycling reports are provided to the client detailing the weights of waste collected from site and the recycling rates achieved.

A full site review was undertaken and various waste streams identified. Recommendations were then made to the Site Manager to improve service, reduce costs and increase recycling rates.

Project Challenges: Recommendations were made to implement a dedicated Food Waste Solution, along with the consignment of other waste as Mixed Recylables and a dedicated Glass Waste service. This would produce a solution achieving a 100% diversion from landfill for the site. However, it was felt that an immediate change to this waste service provision would have proved logistically difficult therefore a service provision was implemented to allow for Dry Mixed Recyclables and General Mixed Waste.
