Reconomy appointed by Lend Lease to help achieve ambitious waste targets

At the heart of Reconomy’s business philosophy are two key strategies:

  • segregation of waste streams to optimise landfill diversion
  • providing financial management and reduction techniques that bring down the overall cost of waste for the customer

98% landfill diversion rate

The three year sole preferred supplier agreement with Reconomy aims to enable Lend Lease group to achieve a 98% landfill diversion rate.

As part of the supply agreement, Reconomy will provide detailed waste reporting across the group through its industry leading waste reporting platform that will benchmark both regional and site level performance, provide a uniformed approach to Site Waste Management Planning and provide site level waste optimisations designed to reduce costs and maximise reuse and landfill diversion rates.

Jon May, Lend Lease’s Head of Environmental Operations: “Landfill diversion, accurate and auditable waste reporting and a uniformed approach to waste management plays a critical role in achieving our waste objectives both now and in the future.”

Andy Fulterer, Lend Lease’s Category Manager: ”The agreement with Reconomy allows us to rationalise our supply chain with a partner that delivers key legal and compliance benefits to Lend Lease nationally.”

Matt Nichols, sales director at Reconomy: “The contract agreement has some ambitious targets for us to achieve and through a partnering approach we feel we are well placed to capitalise on changing market conditions, new and improved technologies and cultural changes across the construction sector that will enable us to deliver on these goals. We have seen tremendous growth over the last 3 years in difficult market conditions for many of our clients in the construction and related industries.  However by providing a tailored offering that meets both the commercial and sustainability goals of our customers we have managed to build a robust solution that is regularly adopted by construction companies of all sizes.”

Reconomy were one of CIWM’s annually reported top 20 waste companies in 2014.
