GPT Waste help Carillion meet landfill targets with proactive waste management services - Case Study
The project, which was based at Doncaster train station, involved building a new platform and footbridge for the city centre station, this meant that there was a lot of excavating and signalling work to be carried out.
Carillion approached GPT Waste for waste management services in order to assist in reaching their high diversion from landfill targets. GPT Waste were asked to visit the site, in order to provide some alternative measures for managing mixed construction waste, general waste, metal and office waste.
Due to the site being based within an active environment, the size of the construction site was restricted.
GPT Waste proposed a new service provision using smaller containers emptied regularly but with improved front-end segregation, which in turn ensured that the strict landfill di-version target was achieved.
GPT Waste also sent a large amount of general and construction waste off for waste to energy processing.
Matthew Pygott, Environmental Coordinator at Doncaster Station Area Enhancement, said:
“GPT have provided a quality, compliant resolution for managing waste here in Doncaster and taken a proactive approach on site.”
