Waste Services wins major public event contract

A major public event contract has been secured by Southampton-based Waste Services to provide recycling and waste support. The company, a Verdant Group subsidiary, will use its experience to deliver a five-year deal with Beaulieu Enterprises. The area of Beaulieu, the setting for the National Motor Museum, Palace House and Abbey in the New Forest National Park, will get wheeled waste and recycling collection bins and a collection service with a dedicated vehicle and crew, at many of its major public events. The company said this is the first time that a focused recycling service has been provided for the areas events. These include the International Autojumble and Automart events, music concerts, firework displays, and motorcycle, military vehicle and caravan shows. As part of its contract, and following research including a site survey, Waste Services designed a flexible plan for servicing Beaulieus events, using historic visitor numbers to plan bin quantities, locations and collection schedules. By capturing and analysing live service information, organisers intend to fine-tune the plan to improve future services. Beaulieu Enterprises events manager Judith Maddox said: The introduction of waste recycling points has meant that our exhibitors and contractors have been able to recycle waste that previously would have gone to landfill. Waste Services also secured a continued contract with Goodwood, which runs the Festival of Speed at Goodwood in Sussex. It provided services for a sixth year at the event in June after being reappointed by lead contractor Taurus. The company can also draw on recent experience at the international Eisteddfod music festival in Carmarthen, Wales.
