Waste not, want not
Waste management company UK Waste Solutions (UKWSL) acts as a brokerage firm, finding service providers for each of its clients’ waste needs, rather than owning its own fleet of bins and trucks. With more than 4,000 local, regional and corporate customers, it’s the second-fastest-growing waste and resource company in the UK.
In 2018, the company launched the UKWSL Academy to ensure that it continues to provide the highest level of service to its clients and service providers. “Through the UKWSL Academy, all members of the UKWSL team can upskill, developing new skills and improving costing capabilities in order to progress through our growing business,” explains Max Kanda, Managing Director of UKWSL.
In the past year, the company’s client base has grown from 1,100 to 4,000, connecting with UKWSL through The Hub, its bespoke software system. This simplifies the interaction between client, supplier and internal departments, ensuring a smooth transaction.
With environmental legislation creating opportunity for growth, the topic of waste management has been elevated to boardroom discussions in many organisations. The drive to divert waste away from landfill and deliver more sustainable options has allowed UKWSL to capitalise on its model of finding the right homes for material on a local and regional basis, with the ability to deliver consolidation of services on a national basis.
“We have also progressed through our ability to implement tailored engagement programmes to deliver increased recycling and cost reduction to clients of all sizes,” says Max.
