Waste firm Mick George has signed a contract with the University of Cambridge to provide collection and disposal services for the next five years.
The company said the agreement was concluded after a comprehensive tender process, with the company’s offer of a fully auditable zero to landfill waste management option swinging the deal in its favour.
It said working with the university would allow it to support community projects in the area, adding to its work with Addenbrokes Hospital and Cambridge United FC.
Commercial manager Abigail Johnson said: “We are immensely proud to be providing services for the University of Cambridge, one of the most famous universities in the world.
“Our commercial waste service has established itself as one of our core services since its launch a year ago, and to be awarded such a high-profile contract is a testament to the investment and efforts the business has made to make it a success.
“In the coming years we will be working closely with all departments at the university, raising awareness of waste recovery and recycling, and we are looking forward to working with their staff and students over the coming months.”
