Enter the ISL Making Waste Wonderful Category At UTV Business Eye Awards
We all have a responsibility, both legally and morally, to reduce our waste generation but making that extra effort could also help you make significant savings in your business or organisation.
The ISL sponsored UTV Business Eye Waste Reduction Project of the Year is open to every organisation to celebrate innovative and effective actions you have taken to reduce the waste generated in your working environment.
Not only will the winners be announced in December at a glittering awards ceremony but we will be running stories in Business Eye for the best of the entries to demonstrate what can be done.
The experts at ISL Waste Management are also offering to give you free consultancy to assess your project and help you make the best entry to the Awards.
Barry Donaghy, Managing Director at ISL says: “As a business we are dedicated to ensuring that no waste goes to landfill. We are equally committed to working with businesses in Northern Ireland to reduce their waste and ensure as much as possible is recycled or reused.
“We want to change the concept of waste as a problem into a real resource. Our new campaign is dedicated to educating the whole of Northern Ireland that we can all be part of Making Waste Wonderful.”
NI Companies Already Making Waste Wonderful
Clements Coffee became contracted to ISL Waste Management in August 2016 and in their first month achieved zero waste to landfill and an impressive 300% reduction in waste management costs through improved efficiencies.
“ISL’s understanding of our daily operations and waste management needs has allowed us to realise substantial cost savings that have made a significant impact on our bottom line.” Nigel Roddy, Operations Manager, Clements Coffee.
A partnership that started just 18 months ago, between local charity SOS NI and ISL Waste Management, has seen around £450,000 of food marked for destruction, diverted to helping those most in need through the charity’s Food Programme.
A truly excellent example of a circular economy, ISL is working with its food distribution clients in a way that not only reduces their waste food destruction costs, but helps SOS NI feed around 1,500 – 2,000 people per week.
Cookstown based CDE Global began working with ISL Waste Management six years ago when the company
began to experience an unprecedented period of growth. Operations are now of such a scale that within the first
three months of 2017, the business generated more than 14, 500kgs of waste which was all diverted from landfill.
“Shortly after we engaged with ISL, following their guidance and advice, we invested in a cardboard baler and now, rather than costing us money in disposal, we sell our waste to ISL so it has become a revenue stream.” Aileen McDonnell, CDE Global
