Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Colleges and Universities all create and generate recyclable waste.
Across an educational site, school kitchens, canteens, classrooms and facilities produce such waste. This waste is expensive to remove, consuming important budget and a lot of waste disposed is recyclable materials which terminates in landfill, whereas this waste can be and should be recycled not only to protect the environment, but to also provide a source of revenue for the organisation.
At Greenbank, our motto is ‘Making Waste Cost Less’ and as part of this we have worked with a number of schools, colleges and universities across the UK. Products supplied into these organisations vary from Food Compactors for school kitchens, cardboard balers which provide high density cardboard bales which can then be sold and Plastic Balers for general plastic waste, which can also be sold.
The result of using these products is as follows:
- Waste Cardboard and Plastic is sold – providing a new revenue stream
- Handling times are reduced, as waste is now compacted into manageable bales
- Hygiene and Pest Control is improved, with dedicated food handling compactors
- Green credentials increased
- Reduction is waste collection costs
If you are a facilities manager at a school, or are responsible for your organisations waste – please do get in touch and we will be happy to discuss your exact requirements.
