PROGRAMME 4: REDUCING COSTS

WASTE AND RECYCLING

Let’s Do FitZero

There are currently more than 50 waste and recycling companies operating in the West End. Each provide at least one daily collection and many do not yet comply with Ultra Low Emission requirements. The additional vehicle congestion and resulting pollution has led The Fitzrovia Partnership to take a sustainable approach for the area and undertake a tender process to select preferred suppliers for business waste and recycling for member businesses.

The purpose of the tender was to select companies that comply with regulations, had robust environmental credentials – both in terms of waste collection and waste disposal – and could offer consolidated and banded collections times to reduce the number of vehicles in the area. They also needed to be competitive on price.

The Tender Process

Five companies were invited to tender with each company required to meet standards in the following areas:

  1. Vehicle types with consideration to engine type and emissions of current fleet vehicles
  2. Specific details of vehicles that will be used in Fitzrovia
  3. Details and timescales of plans to migrate to an emission free at tail pipe fleet in Fitzrovia.
  4. Approach to recycling and the range of materials that could be recycled
  5. Level of support for businesses to increase levels of recycling e.g. workplace behavioural change initiatives
  6. How non-recyclable waste is treated and what proportion goes to landfill.
