Education

Maximising the value of waste to create better outcomes for education

Schools face further budget constraints in the next few years and financial forecasts submitted to the Higher Education Funding Council for England also signal a trend towards unsustainable budget shortfalls.

Against this backdrop, we partner with our education customers to deliver sustainable ways to maximise the value of their waste, while optimising their water usage and boosting building energy efficiency.

Finding efficiencies across large sites

We help our customers find ways to run more resilient, robust and sustainable buildings and operations at a wide range of facilities that support learning, teaching and assessment - from schools and academies to colleges and universities.

Alleviating pressure on tight budgets

Due to proposed cuts in government spending, one of the biggest challenges that the sector is facing is budget constraints. Our innovative, efficient waste management solutions continue to reduce overheads and operating costs.

Maximising the value of waste

We partner with our education customers to deliver sustainable ways to maximise the value of their waste, increasing recycling and diverting more waste from landfill. Helping to reduce and optimise water usage as well as achieve energy efficiencies in their buildings, generating green energy to reduce costs and cut carbon emissions.

We've saved 39 tonnes of CO2 emissions from recycling paper from the educations sector - saving 134 trees
