Powerday has retained the contract for construction material recycling and waste at Europe’s busiest airport following a recent re-tendering process.

The four year contract was awarded by the four Delivery Integrators responsible for the development and construction activities at Heathrow - Mace, Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall and Ferrovial Agroman, as well as major contractor Bam Nuttall currently working on the main tunnel refurbishment project.

Powerday has been working at Heathrow since 2010 during which time the company has recycled and recovered over 87,000 tonnes of construction waste, with none going to landfill. The new contract involves waste away from direct contractors as well as all subcontractors and covers all construction waste arising at the airport, COSHH waste and waste from welfare facilities including cess and food.

Powerday works to a 95% service delivery target at Heathrow and 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.

Richard Miles, Commercial Director, Mace Ltd says: “Mace are delighted to be working in collaboration with Powerday to deliver sustainable waste recycling management to Heathrow Airport Ltd as part of our ongoing Q6 framework commitments.”

Simon Little, Sales & Marketing Director, Powerday says: “We provide Heathrow Airport with a local solution that meets their recycling targets and high service standards; we are delighted to have this contract renewed. We are very proud of what we have delivered across all our work at Heathrow, particularly given the challenges of working in a secure and operationally restricted area of the airport, and look forward to continuing this relationship.”
