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.
