Clean team is recog­nised

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

A part­ner­ship be­tween a waste man­age­ment com­pany and gro­cery and food sup­ply firm has been recog­nised at a na­tional awards cer­e­mony.

Brakes Group, from Ash­ford, was listed as a fi­nal­ist along­side ACM En­vi­ron­men­tal at the Na­tional Re­cy­cling Awards in the Busi­ness Part­ner­ship of the Year cat­e­gory.

ACM pro­vides re­cy­cling fa­cil­i­ties across all 56 Brakes’ sites through­out the coun­try, with the ob­jec­tive of cut­ting the amount of waste go­ing to land­fill to zero.

Brakes in­di­rect goods and ser­vices man­ager, Steve Web­ster, said the deal with ACM has boosted the com­pany’s en­vi­ron­men­tal per­for­mance.

He said: “We have elim­i­nated the use of land­fill and our im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment while sig­nif­i­cantly re­duc­ing our costs.

“ACM is in­valu­able in help­ing us man­age dis­posal as well as mon­i­tor­ing our en­vi­ron­men­tal statis­tics and car­bon cal­cu­la­tor across all our sites.”

Brakes needs to deal with some 14,000 tonnes of waste from its sites, and ACM has been work­ing with the com­pany for 11 years.
