Extension of Integrated Waste and Recycling Contracts

Commercial & Manufacturing Facilities, Contract Awards, Energy, Water & Waste, EMEA, Service Provider News, United Kingdom

Axil Integrated Services has retained separate three-year contracts with global engine manufacturer Cummins and pharmaceutical major Recipharm.


Axil, which operates from bases in Corby (Northamptonshire) and Cannock (Staffordshire), provides a total waste management service for some of the UK’s best-known brands.


The firm impressed bosses at Cummins by helping the manufacturer to maintain their zero-to-landfill target across their sites and delivered savings through improved waste segregation, increased recycling and reductions in labour costs.


Recipharm also retained the firm’s services after Axil delivered a 50 per cent cost reduction in its contaminated waste spend, improved staff education and delivered £30,000 in savings through transport efficiencies across the firm’s sites in Queenborough and Cramlington during the past three years.


Jason Lang, Commercial Director at Axil Integrated Services, says: "We’re incredibly proud to have retained three-year contracts with Cummins and Recipharm who are both recognised as global leaders in their fields.


"We have already secured savings and boosted recycling rates at the sites we manage for both firms and look forward to securing more successes for them in the future."


Andrew McDonald, Facilities Lead for Cummins Darlington, comments: "Cummins has a true commitment to sustainability and Axil continue to be a valued partner in helping us reduce the environmental impact of our facilities."


Recipharm Indirect Procurement Manager, Joe Thompson, adds: "We have had a strong working relationship with Axil during their time providing waste services to the Queenborough site and we are glad to be extending our agreement with the aim of achieving further efficiencies in our waste management and continuing to educate our staff on the best practices to reduce both the cost and environmental impact at Recipharm."
