Encore has a nationwide supply chain of suppliers, from major names to family-run SMEs. Each site is assessed individually to ensure the best procurement across multiple suppliers.
what we do
Waste management services explained
Here are some of the processes and attributes associated with our Waste Management Services
What we do
Our straightforward 5-stage process ensures that a project is BREEAM-compliant, whether or not it’s a BREEAM job:
Encore ensures legal requirements for all our suppliers are recorded and in date, including licenses, insurances and audits.
This process records all services, who ordered them and what supplier has been assigned. This one document with consolidated services and costs is easy for review by individual sites. Compliant Waste Transfer Notes are scanned to each line, so full traceability is in place.
Reports on each project provided by site and for the stakeholder. This cumulative data informs sustainability policies and best ways to meet BREEAM ratings and SKA measures if required.
Upon completion, Encore provides site waste management plans that combine all tickets, reports and duty of care for the entire project. This also flags improvements and lessons learned.
Why we do it
One of the key highlights of Theresa May’s 25-year environment plan submitted in 2018 was a commitment to reduce all avoidable plastic waste by 2042.
We are already committed to this goal, as we provide dedicated plastic, can, paper and food waste bins to sites, as well as disposal bags and a dedicated collection service with end-destination transparency. We also co-ordinate the safe removal of all hazardous waste and supply dedicated bins on site for this purpose.
Through our unique ProjectDIVERT app, Encore has already implemented waste-management strategies that reuse and recycle materials, particularly plastic waste on our clients’ sites.
Theresa May also spoke about the need to increase resource efficiency and reduce pollution and waste. In this area we’ve also played a key role, providing individual sites with monthly waste information that records materials coming off the site, the diversion rates and how much carbon is saved.
We continue to develop ways to offer practical and less environmentally impactful waste-management services and solutions, and are proud to be featured as a Best Practice Representative in the 2019 Parliamentary Review journal (read the Review here: Encore Environment-Parliamentary Review). Encore was chosen as we are independent of the waste suppliers, but also consult on strategies around waste and BREEAM.
Our services make life easier
One Encore Waste Coordinator becomes your single point of contact for all sites and waste disposal streams to ensure continuity of service. It’s not unheard of having a same-day response.
One list of services per month, by site, including all waste transfer information (tickets, deliveries, exchanges, etc.) is sent to site for sign-off for invoicing.
Encore pay all the waste companies, eliminating administration costs and “noise” generated by multiple site teams. No on-stop and consolidated invoicing. Encore pay the suppliers so we have full control over Duty of Care compliance.
Monthly reporting by site covering waste type, volume and recycle rates identifies carbon reduction through improved recycling options and diversion from landfill.
We supply actual data from all sites in a monthly stakeholder report that can relate them to your KPIs and goals to support your social value objectives.
Clients using one waste management resource company provides a consistent approach across all sites, which adds value in their tender returns to potential customers. All the data is in one place and, if requested, can include strip-out and demolition information, so all waste data is collected for the entire project.
Clients use our reports and data in tender and RFI submissions to demonstrate added value to their customers. Encore regularly attend mid-tender interviews along with their clients to strengthen their capabilities in this area.
Encore’s site waste management plans for each site include a forecast of materials, ongoing reporting and administration documented (regardless of a project’s length), as well as suggested improvements and recommendations upon completion. Automated resource efficiency management plans are also supplied for BREEAM projects.
