Automotive repair firm awards waste contract to SWR

Solus Accident Repair Centres has already made significant cost savings by streamlining operations and awarding its automotive waste and recycling contract to SWR.

Solus is of the leading accident repair groups in the UK, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Aviva Plc. With 19 accident repair centres in the UK, Solus repair vehicles for some of the largest insurance companies, brokers and motor fleets in the UK, repairing over 48,000 vehicles each year.

SWR has already identified significant operational efficiencies which have led to a considerable reduction in Solus’ waste costs. The waste management process is now more streamlined, and recycling performance greatly improved.

Administration is also much simplified as SWR now manages all waste streams under a single contract and a ‘one stop shop’ for billing and day to day enquiries.

Solus’ environmental manager Mike Burt said: “We have been hugely impressed with the results that SWR has been able to achieve in such a short space of time. Managing our waste is no longer a hassle.

“We have one contract, one point of contact and one monthly bill – which is significantly less than what we were previously paying. SWR also provide us with regular reports that helps us demonstrate our green credentials.”
