B&M Waste Services has secured an extension to its sustainable waste management contract with Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU).

 

The partnership has been in place since 2015 and will now continue for at least another two years.

 

The zero-to-landfill, carbon-neutral total waste solution covers all the university’s campuses and its other buildings across the city.

 

Martin Christie, environmental manager at LJMU, said: “We have made significant strides in the past three years in relation to our sustainability objectives and B&M have proactively supported our waste and recycling agenda.”

 

In 2017, LJMU diverted more than 625 tonnes of waste away from landfill – 60 per cent was recycled, with the remaining residual general and food waste fully recovered for energy use.

 

This equated to at least 470,000kg of indirect carbon emission savings, the equivalent of saving 330 trees and more than 175 thousand car miles.

 

LJMU is part of a growing portfolio of higher education establishments that choose B&M to help them improve their environmental performance.
