GPT Improves Sodexo’s Recycling, Waste Management

St George's TowerGPT Waste Management has helped Sodexo save about £4,000 ($6,190) in six months by improving recycling and waste management at college facilities in the UK.

Sodexo manages the International Study Centres facilities at St. Georges Tower, which is comprised of 164 student accommodation studios and some small college facilities in Leicester.

In a case study, GPT says at the end of 2014 Sodexo asked GPT to take over the waste management with future plans to identifying and improving overall waste practices.

This site requires its waste provider to be flexible because the amount of waste generated by the students varies throughout the course of the year. At the beginning of summer it is necessary for the site to increase the frequency of collections for when residents are vacating, and then decrease significantly when the Tower has much fewer occupants.

Another hurdle to overcome with GPT involvement, is encouraging students, all of whom are international, to recycle.

After the initial few months of review, GPT reduced the client’s general waste collection frequency by half and implemented an improved bin system for the site.

This small, but effective, change started in February 2015 and it has already saved Sodexo about £4,000.
