Tarmac signs Biffa deal

Road maintenance firm Tarmac has appointed Biffa to manage its waste across the UK.

Biffa’s dry mixed recycling service will allow cardboard, paper, newspapers, plastic films and bottles, and steel and aluminium cans to be placed into one bin by Tarmac staff.

These waste products will be converted into reusable commodities at Biffa’s materials recycling facilities.

In a trial of the service, Tarmac sites working with Biffa increased their recycling from 4 tonnes per month in 2011, to 30 tonnes per month in 2012.

General waste has fallen on average by 47 tonnes per month.

Tarmac head of sustainability Dr Martyn Kenny said: “I am looking forward to a successful partnership that delivers real results for our business in the immediate future and takes Tarmac one step closer to realising our zero-waste-to-landfill aspiration.”
