At Bywaters, we are passionate about the environment. We aim to deliver continual environmental improvement for both Bywaters and its customers while supporting local community initiatives and striving to set best practice in our industry.
EMS certified to ISO14001:2004
Our commitment to continual environmental improvement is central to our Environmental Management System (EMS), which is certified to ISO14001:2004 and covers all operations at our Lea Riverside Recycling and Recovery Facility.
Helping customers improve their own environmental performance
In 2007, we launched the Chartered Institution of Waste Management accredited Waste Awareness Certificate course at our training centre at Lea Riverside. The course aims to help customers improve their understanding of waste and its handling and so improve the environmental performance of their company.
We also provide an environmental consultancy service to our customers - from Resource auditing and advising on environmental legislation to more bespoke services.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how we can help you improve your environmental performance.
Committed to reducing carbon emissions
We recognise the serious threat that climate change poses and the responsibility that Bywaters has to reduce its own carbon emissions. We have recently introduced a bespoke vehicle route-planning programme, which can plan routes more effectively to reduce mileage and fuel use. By closely monitoring the electricity consumption of our MRF under different operating conditions, we are able to run the most efficient configurations to minimise our carbon footprint.
Working with local schools and colleges
We work with local schools and colleges to highlight recycling and waste issues in the local community. Dr Alan Kirk, our Compliance Manager, visit schools and colleges to help students learn about recycling and consider solutions to London's waste problem. We continue to develop our training centre at our Lea Riverside site enabling us to work more closely with the community.
