Recycling and waste management provider Biffa has taken a three-year contract to manage waste, recycling and resources at six production sites for snack manufacturer KP Snacks.

 

KP Snacks – famous for brands including KP Nuts, McCoys Crisps and Butterkist Popcorn – has appointed Biffa to deliver its integrated resource management (IRM) service from July this year.

 

The contract will see Biffa service KP Snacks’ manufacturing sites in Ashby, Hellaby, Pontefract, Tanfield, Teesside and Barnsley, managing materials such as cardboard, soft plastics and general waste. As part of the contract, Biffa will also handle the disposal of effluent and hazardous waste, provide industrial cleaning services and deliver waste reduction and elimination programmes.

 

Trevor Yong, senior business development manager at Biffa, says that the focus of the proposal was on helping KP Snacks to minimise their impact on the environment, recycling as much as possible and, wherever achievable, delivering at a more competitive cost.

 

Biffa will also provide a bespoke on-site service, with dedicated contract managers available to be on hand to influence, enable and guide production plants. These contract managers will provide regular face-to-face facility assessments, offering cost-cutting solutions and ways to streamline processes –another key draw of its IRM proposal.
