Viridor secures NHS Lanarkshire deal

Viridor has signed a deal to look after NHS Lanarkshire’s waste and boost the health board’s recycling rate.

The firm will manage general recyclables, batteries, electronic waste and special waste using a mix of technologies at its Bargeddie hub.

NHS Lanarkshire aims to boost recycling rates “towards 75 per cent”.

Head of sustainability and environment Marie Porteous said: “Not only will these processes be more energy efficient and reduce our carbon footprint, but they will achieve significant financial savings to the organisation.”

She said there would be an initial saving of £40,000 then further savings through improved processes.

“The contract aims to reduce the amount of waste disposed of across Lanarkshire, while increasing the quantity of waste recycled.

“It will also reduce the overall carbon footprint of the process by looking at vehicle routes, bin sizes and uplifts.”
