To mark Recycle Week, GRAHAM ran its annual waste competition “Waste Watchers Challenge” to recognise those sites that have identified waste reduction and recycling opportunities.
Generating less waste means reduced reliance on landfill, less use of natural resources, lower CO2 emissions – e.g. from producing, transporting and disposing of the waste materials – and a lower risk of pollution incidents.
The challenge was open to all GRAHAM sites and we received numerous entries exhibiting best practice, but the waste management techniques put in place by the University of Glasgow and Blyth Enabling Works sites were superior to the others and they take away the building and civils winner’s prizes respectively.
The winning sites received a lunch voucher for the team to enjoy.
As a business, preventing and reducing waste will help us to lower waste disposal costs thereby facilitating competitive tender prices and demonstrating our Corporate Social Responsibility.
Thanks to all sites who participated.
