Heathrow Airport Contract Renewed With Powerday
5th June 2013
The recycling and waste management contract at one of the world’s busiest airports has been renewed with Powerday. The contract was awarded by Wilson James who provides logistics services to all construction projects on the airport. Worth over £2million a year, the contract covers all construction waste arising at Heathrow Airport as well as COSHH waste and waste from welfare facilities including cess and food. Current projects on the airport include the build of the new Terminal 2 and new baggage handling facilities.
Powerday has been working with Wilson James at Heathrow since 2010. Working to a 95% service delivery target, Powerday is required to exchange skips and bins within restricted timeframes, a demanding yet essential challenge given the security and operational restrictions at one of the UK’s most important assets. The company also provides a dedicated account manager, accurate recycling reporting, on and off site segregation, and day and night time collections in order to meet the sustainability and service level requirements of Heathrow.
Andy Rhodes, Head of Logistics, Wilson James says: “We are very pleased to renew our contract with Powerday. The company has continually delivered against Heathrow’s high service standards and recycling performance targets, supporting Wilson James’ principle of delivering the highest level of service at the airport.”
Simon Little, Sales & Marketing Director, Powerday says: “We are delighted to have this contract renewed. We work in partnership with Wilson James and pride ourselves on the level of service delivered across all aspects of this contract, particularly given the challenging circumstances of working in a secure and operationally restricted area of Europe’s busiest airport”.
We were pleased to have awarded this contract to Powerday. They have delivered their services efficiently and reliably, achieved high recycling rates and 100% recovery, meeting our requirements throughout the project. They have been easy to deal with, reasonable and fair. We have been particularly impressed with their account management and waste reporting capabilities
