Alton Towers

“As part of our review process we visited Brown Recycling’s operation and were impressed with the overall setup and operation. We were particularly impressed to see all the incoming waste streams being segregated to be recycled.”

Alton Towers

Merlin Entertainments is the largest European entertainments company operating in Europe. Merlin runs 99 attractions in 22 countries across four continents, including Alton Towers located in Staffordshire, England. Alton Towers aim is to deliver unique, memorable and rewarding experiences to millions of visitors across their estate, so ensuring they have an efficient waste disposal service to keep their site environmentally friendly, clean, and safe is essential.

Brown Recycling were honoured to be the chosen waste disposal company for the multi-national award-winning entertainment group, winning our partnership with Alton Towers not only on price, but also for our established reputation as a leading waste company in the UK for the ‘waste to fuel’ markets.

Alton Towers was a major challenge not only because it is such a large site to organise effective and timely services for, but it is also a difficult place to access based up in the Staffordshire Moorlands, and with the traffic flow issues surrounding the development, we had to factor in timed deliveries that would suit the requirements of our client best.

We provide the ultimate solution to the sites waste management needs, providing a dedicated account manager who is also on hand to provide support for their detailed waste management plan, delivering a bespoke service that is exclusive to the needs of Alton Towers.

Brown McFarlane Ltd

“Our business relationship started over 12 months ago and has since gone from strength to strength. In general, the scrap metal industry hasn’t received the best press in the past but dealing with Brown Recycling has brought a refreshing level of honesty and integrity to the market. Dovetail these qualities with a first class customer response and logistics service and Brown Recycling are well positioned to support the ongoing growth of our business.”

Uttoxeter Racecourse

“Brown Recycling took over the management of all our waste earlier this year and we have formed an excellent relationship. They are keen on all recycling so we have a much greener approach to the handling our waste which can vary from surplus food from the restaurants or bottles and cans from the bars to stable waste. We appreciate their flexibility and reliability which is so important for a busy operation like ours when no two weeks are the same.”

V Festival

“Right from the outset you put my mind at ease that Brown Recycling were capable of handling the contract, throughout the process the communication and pre-planning was spot on.

During the event and for the post clean you and your team performed brilliantly. Due to the nature of the event industry suppliers have to be flexible and work in some challenging conditions, in particular weather-wise, this was definitely the case this year in V Festival. The drivers were always friendly and willing to go the extra mile for us which made our job a lot easier.

From start to finish it has been a pleasure working with Brown and I hope to continue the relationship going into the future. I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to any prospective client.”

V Festival

V Festival is an annual two day music festival hosted, attended by over 250,000 people last year alone. With high-profile artists, and so many people in attendance, this event required exceptional cleaning and waste management services to ensure the festival was an enjoyable event for everyone. When Ryans Cleaning UK Ltd asked us to partner with them to provide a waste clearance solution for the event, we had to ensure we could provide our high quality standard of service, and enough drivers and equipment to ensure a successful event.

Ryans Cleaning UK have provided a quality cleaning service to V Festival and other large scale events for years, and as it was our first time working with them, our team at Brown Recycling want to our teams could work seamlessly together to provide a first class service for the event.

We provided Ryans Cleaning with:

  • A supply of drivers to cover 24 hour waste removal needs over four days
  • A range of equipment and containers in varying sizes
  • Additional vehicles to accommodate demands
  • Environmental best practice, with a zero waste to landfill solution

Our team worked alongside Ryans Cleaning UK to provide a seamless waste solution that ensured all customers, artists, sponsors and partner areas were kept clean and hygienic, through best management and removal of waste from the premises.

Brown Recycling also provided a ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL waste solution that delivered Environmental Best Practice to our customer and their clients’ customer – the general public, artists and everyone involved in attending the event over the course (and subsequent week) of V Festival 2016.

Tiger Trailers

Operating from Winsford, Cheshire, Tiger Trailers manufacture trailers and bodywork. Through their partnership with Brown Recycling, we have been able to ensure 100% of their waste is diverted away from landfill.

More recycling means we had to create a dedicated plan for their site, allowing them to pursue a single stream waste management plan. Helping to maintain this high performance in 2018, we will also be with Tiger Trailers in 2019 as they open a new state-of-the-art factory for their business.

This has all been made possible by investment and dedication to efficient recycling by both ourselves and Tiger Trailers, ensuring continued success when it comes to waste management and the environment.

Antony Grocott, the Finance Manager at Tiger Trailers said:

“At Tiger, we realise the importance of protecting the environment. We are therefore embracing environmental change, which has been achieved with help and support from Brown Recycling. This change has also helped the company to achieve value for money.”

By providing dedicated wheelie bins to help sort materials, and regular collections to suit their business needs, we’ve helped to make responsible waste management easy. From cardboard materials to general waste, we’ll be continuing to work with Tiger Trailers across their site to ensure all waste is dealt with in the appropriate manner, avoiding the need to send anything to landfill.

Intu Potteries

Work on the intu Potteries shopping centre required time and cost-effective waste management throughout the construction to ensure the project was delivered on time and within budget. Working alongside Wates Construction, the professionals at Brown Recycling were instrumental in the smooth operation of the process.

Intu Potteries

Who are Wates Construction?

Working alongside us in this project was Wates Construction, who have become one of the largest privately-owned construction companies in the UK, since their establishment in 1897. With over 4,000 staff and working with over 10,000 supply chain operatives, they are able to deliver a wide scope of projects, including work for commercial businesses and councils.

Of their time working with Brown Recycling, Wates Construction commented that we “contributed greatly in enabling us to complete this project within the required timeframe through offering prompt and efficient emptying of waste containers. We would definitely consider them as our waste partner for future contracts”.

Customer Challenge

Our challenges were wide-ranging, but the primary aim was to manage the costs to stay within the budget the client had set out.

We also wanted to ensure the operational efficiency of the site was maximised through ensuring the waste was dealt with in a timely and efficient manner. This was also in line with the aim to minimise the movement of on-site vehicles.

Not only this, but we also wanted to ensure that environmental performance was enhanced to enable us to provide proof of environmental best practice.

Brown Recycling Solution

From the very start of the project, we were committed to providing a competitive proposal and a bespoke solution tailored to the individual waste streams of the project.

We ensured a zero waste to landfill solution for our client, and returned revenue for materials where applicable. We also ensured that our waste management was an easy, streamlined solution, and we made sure to provide appropriate signage to promote segregation of waste.

Customer Benefits

Alongside Wates Construction, our specialists were able to complete the project with success. The intu Potteries project saw many financial and environmental benefits from working with Brown Recycling, including:

  • Zero waste sent to landfill
  • C. 529t Refuse Derived Fuel (RDF)
