ENVIRONMENTAL SUCCESS FOR BRAKES

Travis Way, Finance & Operations Director at ACM, said “We are delighted to present Brakes with this award in recognition of the company’s commitment to reducing its environmental impact. With multiple sites across the UK this was going to be a substantial undertaking; we are pleased to have achieved such consistent and impressive results with Brakes. We currently service all their sites, providing a fully-managed, single source waste and recycling solution. Not only have we helped Brakes on the road to 0% to landfill, we have worked hard to ensure that the most sustainable end point disposal methods are being used. We have seen more than 45% of waste now being recycled.”

Steve Webster, Indirect Goods & Services Manager at Brakes, said “We have been working in partnership with ACM Environmental for a number of years and together have reached our optimum environmental performance. ACM have a unique business model supported by a nationally-integrated network of recycling and reprocessing facilities. This enables us at Brakes to minimise the amount of waste we produce, optimise our recycling levels, eliminate the use of landfill, and lower our impact on the environment with significantly reduced costs.

ACM’s state-of-the-art Environmental Services Portal (ESP) is invaluable in helping us manage compliance and end point disposal, as well as monitoring our environmental statistics and carbon calculator across all our sites”
