A recycling adventure: BMW and Mini dealers get new waste contract

Car manufacturer BMW is introducing an improved waste management and recycling programme for its BMW and Mini dealerships and authorised bodyshops.

The programme is designed to offer a single contract for all waste collections.
It also aims to reduce the amount of workshop waste that is disposed of in landfill sites to no more than 5%.

Automotive Waste Solutions (AWS) has been appointed to run the service.

BMW (UK) director of aftersales Steve Nash said: "I believe our new waste management and recycling programme will be welcomed by our dealers and bodyshops. AWS is a leader in its field and is able to provide a cost effective service that offers clear benefits to our network.

"We have also ensured that AWS puts an increased emphasis on the recycling of waste. Not only is this better from an environmental standpoint, but it also avoids the risings costs and environmental impact surrounding hazardous waste and landfill."

Prior to the introduction of this scheme, a dealer or bodyshop would have to contact several waste management companies. The new programme will collect all waste streams ranging from oil filters to fluorescent tubes and will look to recycle everything where possible.
