B&M WASTE AND ASTRUM CLEAN UP WITH RECYCLING SUCCESS

Astrum Commercial Cleaning Services has teamed up with B&M Waste Services to carry out waste collection and recycling at several sites in Birmingham.

 

The 21 sites at which B&M will provide waste services include eight on the Birmingham Business Park as well as Astrum’s head office at Diddington Farm.

 

The most efficient approach was to segregate two waste streams – general waste and mixed recycling. New bins were provided at each location, about 40 in total, and as the business park is the busiest site it receives daily collections from Monday to Friday.

 

Astrum and its clients now benefit from a carbon-neutral waste management service with zero waste sent to landfill.

 

Since the partnership began last September, Astrum has saved over 10,000kg of carbon emissions through landfill diversion, the equivalent of nine trees and over 3,000 car miles.

 

Astrum provides a full range of cleaning, facilities and security services across the East and West Midlands.
