Wastecycle wins Uni waste contracts

Waste management firm Wastecycle has been awarded a three-year joint contract by the University of Leicester and Loughborough University.

Wastecycle battled it out for the top spot against a dozen other waste collection companies. It estimated that 4,000 tonnes of waste will be recovered and recycled each year.

Daniel Shearstone, Wastecycle national account manager, said: “We plan to help staff and students become even more environmentally aware and better understand the need to separate their waste as it is created. This will involve awareness campaigns, the supply of separate waste bins and collection regimes for all the usual forms of waste.”

The University of Leicester aims to increase its recycling rate by 2.5% each year, which would achieve a 75% recycling rate during the next decade.
