When our Recycling Services Team were awarded the contract in 2010,
Matalan required more than 450 bespoke collections
of cardboard and polythene film per month from
stores and distribution centres nationwide.
In order to deliver on such a challenging proposition, we audited each Matalan site, thereby
understanding the existing collection process in place
and, where possible, identified potential cost-cutting
and environmentally friendly alternatives.
By making use of our vast materials knowledge,
global market knowledge and direct relationships
with the world’s most renowned reprocessors,
Matalan are assured of the most competitive rebates
for their recycled materials.
This is demonstrated by our financial
transparency. We took the initiative to offer an
open book pricing model to Matalan with recycling
rebates linked to public price indices.
