Various materials will be source-segregated including paper, cardboard, plastic, metal glass, solvents, paints, filter material, headlamps, bumpers, panels, trims, tyres, wheels, office waste, and other general waste.

The sites, based in the east of England and south Yorkshire, previously had differing waste activities. SWR will streamline these activities for a more uniform approach, resulting in cost savings of around 10% per annum.

AW Repair Group’s managing director, Andrew Walsh, said of the new deal: “Through SWR, we have made several operational improvements and already dramatically improved our recycling performance from 30% to around 70%.

“We now also have a single point of contact for all of our waste issues across our various sites. SWR also provide us with regular recycling and carbon savings reports, which enable us to monitor progress and demonstrate our achievements.”
