At Bank Station Capacity Upgrade (BSCU) project, a large number of contractors are used across different shift patterns, all of whom require personal protective equipment (PPE). Before the introduction of the PPE Bins, all damaged and unusable PPE was disposed of in regular waste, therefore it was being sent to landfill.
To reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill, BSCU provided PPE recycling bins at both the work sites to collect damaged PPE to enable the contents to be collected and recycled, or burnt to produce heat.
The PPE bins were provided in January 2019 and we will continue to monitor the amount of full bins collected to produce KPI’s relating to recycling PPE.
