The utilities sector is broadly divided into 2 areas of focus: water and energy. Many of the issues that these areas face are shared but there are differences and it’s important that any waste management provider is aware of this. Through our work in the sector we have become fully conversant with the needs of all types of utility businesses.
Management of carbon footprints are critical to both water and energy companies, as is cost. Taking a longer term view of strategies is a growing theme amongst utility’s in order to counter future impacts, especially important as regulatory pressures continue to grow. Ecologically sound practices are key drivers when choosing suppliers and none more so than with waste where properly considered plans can have a major and very positive impact on many areas of a business.
Our bespoke online management system “The Hub” has been especially designed to help our customers stay ahead of the game. Documentation like, Waste transfer notes, waste carrier licences etc can all be easily accessed online 24/7.
Staff education and engagement is fast becoming one of the biggest challenges faced by employers in the utility sector with particular regard to waste segregation, which is where cost savings and compliance can be lost or won. Having UKWSL as your waste partner brings the dual benefits of having a partner who understands these challenges and can help you with a solution.
As a Wastesmart accredited company we are able to design and deliver staff training and education programs to suit your own individual needs. Our marketing experts are also on hand to help with pictorial signage (especially useful in work forces where English is not a first language) and visual prompts.
