Manufacturing Case Study

Pilkington plc About the Project:

Project Challenges:

Pilkington plc is one of the world’s leading glass manufacturers and produces a variety of types of glass across their sites.

Following the successful operation of the contract, which was agreed for an initial 12 month period, the contract period has now been extended by a further 15 months until the next Tender process begins.

This includes automotive glass, glass for the double glazing/ construction industries and the revolutionary self- cleaning glass now being used extensively across the world. The glass is manufactured across 5 sites in St Helens, Merseyside, whilst they operate a Research and Development Facility at Lathom in Lancashire.

Project Challenges: GPT took over the management of the Project in May 2011 and now operate on all 6 sites. A Trade Waste service is operated on all the sites, whilst the larger manufacturing plants also use Roll on Off Containers for Cardboard/ Paper etc. GPT Waste also manages other more specific waste streams, including bi- products of the glass manufacturing processes.

In addition, GPT Waste has now been asked by the client to look at other waste streams in order to consolidate the waste management for all sites.
