Hampshire’s largest provider of affordable homes, Vivid, has appointed TJ Waste & Recycling to collect and recycle trade waste on a three-year £1.5 million contract. 

 

The waste management operator won the contract in a competitive tendering process run by Vivid, which has 30,000 homes under management and 70,000 customers.

 

Vivid, formed from the merger of housing associations First Wessex and Sentinel, has set a target of 90 per cent or more of waste recycled from its sites in any one year.

 

Mark Batchelor, Vivid’s commercial director, said: “With 30,000 homes under management, our maintenance programme unavoidably generates a large volume of refurbishment and new-build waste, such as plasterboard, brickwork, wood, wires, pipework, tiles, plastic, metal, carpets and ceramics. Following a competitive tender process, TJ was able to offer Vivid environmental peace of mind through a commitment to recycle 90 per cent or more of our trade waste, underpinned by data-driven solutions.”

 

TJ Waste & Recycling aims for “the vast majority of skip waste being recycled or used to power homes and workplaces instead of going to landfill”.

 

Now in its 22nd year and with a mixed-use range of 165 lorries, TJ works for 3,000 companies and organisations across southern England.
