Connecting corporate
business to local

We are dedicated to connecting corporate business and their local community to help minimise waste. Using ProjectDIVERT, we identify items from construction projects such as floor tiles, furniture, paving slabs and fixtures and fittings, to name a few, so they can be reused, repurposed and re-loved by organisations in need!

Unwanted items are
donated to organisations
in need

ProjectDIVERT is our amazing app which facilitates the donation of unwanted items from refurbishment construction projects to organisations that can reuse or repurpose them. This actively reduces the amount of waste going to landfill and helps protect the environment.

Recovered items ready to be rehomed

Many construction projects fit-out and refurbish hotels, old office buildings, theatres and housing blocks for example, but what happens to all the unwanted materials? Often, these items are put into a mixed-use skip destined for a materials recycling facility or worse, landfill. We want to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, so we make sure that all waste items that can be reused are identified early in the design stage of the project. As a result, when the items are removed from site, they are not broken or mixed in with other waste and are ready to be rehomed.

If u are a school, charity, community group, or social
enterprise, and would be interested in receiving surplus items that could bring a new lease of life to your organisation, you can register your interest here, stating your organisation name(and where applicable) charity number as well as your location. We will do the rest.

How does it work?

Identifying opportunities for social value and helping
the environment

ProjectDIVERT is really smart and can pinpoint which community groups are close to the site with surplus items to donate. This ensures that we are also keeping transportation costs, and importantly, carbon down when we rehome items. We take care of the logistics, so don’t worry about transportation, we’ll get it to you. And… everything you receive is donated with love. This is about helping the environment and social value, not making money.

ProjectDIVERT explained

Client benefits

The carbon is not just that saved from avoiding landfill but transportation to conventional routes who then stock pile material and send on to reprocesses. The idea is to send to end destination rather than via another route. This way the material is cleaner, the cost to the client is lower and we are able to provide 100% recycled rate specifically for our clients waste.

Items, fixtures and fittings

We’ve identified on-site items in good condition – from carpet tiles and paving slabs to furniture and crockery – that have benefitted local business projects, charities, schools and community schemes.

Unique database

Through its unique database, ProjectDIVERT can locate accredited recyclers and reprocessors, as well as social enterprises, charities and schools, that are local to a site – and all at the push of a button. It also plots material recycling facilities and the landfill end destination, so a full analysis can be provided.

On-site material

Everything from WEEE, white goods, hotel appliances, kitchens, lighting, hoarding, builders sand carpet, glass, metal, plasterboard, raised floors - basically anything that we can re-use off-site that benefits others - has been diverted from Material Recovery Facilities and delivered direct to recyclers and reprocessors. This approach improves the quantity, quality and associated value of the waste materials for end-user applications and is a cheaper, more direct means of disposal.

Early assessment

Encore advises and supports clients, project managers and building and fit-out contractors from the early design stage of a project through to completion and beyond. Our detailed pre-refurbishment, environmental and waste assessments are BREEAM compliant and are able to re-use and relocate items without delaying any project deadlines.

Proven carbon and costs saving

It gives hard data around cost and carbon; it's not just a ‘nice to do’. It's proven to save costs and reduce carbon, with the ultimate aim to reduce skips on the road. It may be that there are multiple items on one site with the output demonstrating a combined saving.

Who have we helped

We have some fantastic case studies from homeless shelters, hospices, libraries and schools and colleges that have all benefitted from being on our ProjectDIVERT community database. Take a look.

ProjectDIVERT complements our range of environmental services, which includes BREEAM assessments for recycling and management reports to evidence social value.
